We finally moved Miss Daisy and Miss Hannah down to their new home yesterday! And your milk pickup will now be thru the front door in the frig right there in our little ranch store, at Diamond S Delights. We're still doing a lot of shuffling, but we are now officially milking there.
Somehow, in the midst of all this activity, we managed to purchase a new milk cow! But really, is there ever a good time to purchase a milk cow??? I've asked myself that so many times I can't count. We need milk if we want cheese though, and she is a sweet cow, for the most part, with what looks to be lots of milk.
However that could take a few days... Last night she let us have 3 cups, this morning 1 1/2 gallons, but in a couple more days we hope Bessy will be adjusted to her new home without her calf.
Thankfully this morning before daylight Gene went to check to see if the heat was still on at church and all three girls were almost to the corner of Cold Springs and Alkali roads, Miss Bessy was leading the pack...
