Surprisingly, Como Se (Llama) has a new friend in romper room. We missed the show, but this morning the umbilical cord was still wet. Oh I hope they are both girls, but nevertheless, it’s name has to be Carl. (LLamas in Hats on Youtube.) I am relieved that it was not born this winter, now … Continue reading

Quick Kefir Puffy Flatbreads
I use some of the techniques from the Not-so-quick Rajanthanu flatbreads which are stuffed with cilantro, garam masala… They take forever, and don’t puff up like a balloon, which makes these fun. You can definitely make a batch of 8 in under an hour. I adapted several flatbread recipes from this amazing book, Flatbreads and … Continue reading
Rodeo Without a Marriage Manual
Eventful day, with those two in Dallas. First of all I have been in utter (udder) worry over the huge bag of Eleanor, as this is the 6th day I have not milked her, having to dry her up now, and it seems to be going down a little. It is not as big as … Continue reading

For some reason in the morning, he had locked them in the meadow where the sheep are locked in … Continue reading
How to Dry Up a High Producing Guernsey Cow?

Her calf is due Aug. 16th and so to have her dry two full months before her due date, she must be dry by June 16th. It still breaks … Continue reading
Driving in Pigsty-le
Yesterday my neighbor drove a couple of hours to pick up 9 piglets to sell and raise for her family. My friend of meadow milking fame was taking three of them. “Now, I don’t have a crate, so I just made this nice soft hay bed for them in the back of my car. I … Continue reading
