My favorite girl Sugar had a little girl! In the last three weeks I've had 4 boys in a row, so this is very exciting! (The boys get sold to the neighbor right away, so I don't get to keep them at all, but I do get a nice check)
"Now" magazine in Toronto published this article on the climate change talks in Peru this week; yes, cows and other livestock contribute to climate change.
Hi friends! If you follow me on twitter (and if you don't you should: @moarcowbelle) you know I've been working my butt off at the fair. I thought I would share all the adorable and fun cow photos I took.
It was 14 days of caring for the best 16 cows from 7 farms around the state. Not only do the cows compete, but you…
No seriously. He calls his cows with his trombone. I want to retcon my own childhood to include this.
This video from VICE is absolutely spot-on. If you have 20 minutes, give it a watch.
Sugar had a, um, mishap today. I went out to check the cows and I see she has this thing hanging out of her mouth — it looks like a chunk of cud. She is sort of ignoring it sometimes, chewing it and coughing other times. So I stood really still so she would walk up to me and quick grabbed it. She pulled away and…
I had the vet out this morning to pregnancy check four heifers. Conception rate should be 30% to 50%, so I thought I'd probably have two pregnant. Guess what! All 4 are pregnant! He even paused the ultrasound machine to show me the pictures (not that there is much to see, just a little white speck really). Similar to…
This is how I'm feeling today:
I went to the doctor today and got an anti-depressant prescription. And yesterday I got my cow doing this ridiculously stupid thing with her tongue. She did it for an hour straight!
I am really feeling the Monday blues, so here's a cute picture from my weekend.
Help me name my new baby cow!!
"Cow is dead, milking not recommended."
Hi GT! I have already had enough of today. I had to work at 2am the last two mornings, and yesterday it was for 16 hours straight. I slept for 10 hours and had a huge Starbucks Caramel Macchiato which usually has enough caffeine to leave me shaking....and I could still curl up and fall asleep on the floor of my office…
I have a lot of anxiety issues, and I have been meaning to see someone about them for a long time.
My phone for some reason added this fake snow effect to the last pic without asking and I don't know why...
Here is Gina. Gina is sick. I'm going to try to make her better!
Mocha had her baby two weeks early and it's a girl!
Today I went out to feed the cows and.....Dew had gotten herself stuck in the hay feeder.
Apparently my phone somehow knows when I took a bunch of pictures right in a row, and then compiles them into a GIF? I have had it for 6 months and I just figured this out. This picture isn't that exciting but the fact that it's a gif is fun.
And it was actually really fun! It was a first for me and my fiance, because we both grew up in the city. Since we moved to a ranching/mining/forestry town in northern Canada, I've been dying to get out on a ranch and have some fun. Here's a photo of me holding down a calf for it's inoculations and branding (LIKE A…
