A cow for many years to come

Oh my word. I love this little cow. Love her. I just can't explain. She is the most kind, curious little creature ever. . . so unlike the Jerseys I've known before (and I loved those, too, of course)
I was walking down the hill after taking these, and I thought. . .Surely we will be lucky enough that Clemmy will be our family cow a decade from now smile emoticon



Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens

- Proverbs 27:23-27

"I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."

- George Washington
