Ellie and I during better times, times that I do at least know are ahead. . .

I surely love this grumpy 3 quartered Jersey cow, and while I lament the loss of the calf through what I did not know . . .
I am tremendously thankful to know she is, in fact, quite healthy and can conceive without any extra help. . .
Sigh.

LUCAS FARM

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
