We had a great summer. One of our granddaughters , Kaylea, decided she wanted to show the cattle more than just at our local fair and State Fair. Well, this silly little heifer, that I was never really impressed with, won a LOT. She was Grand Champion at our county fair, won again as Grand Champion Angus at the Oregon State 4-H fair and then went to the Puyallup Fair and won the Angus Junior show and the Futurity. Needless to say I’m a little more impressed with her. What I really always liked about her was her personality. She is super quiet, her name is actually (Quiet Lucy). She and Kaylea have now become great buddies and they actually play together. All Kaylea has to do is get a treat (did you know they have cow treats)? and Quiet Lucy (Laniey) will run and play with her. It’s pretty cute, kind of like a very big dog!!! Now she wants to get the miracle calf, Passion’s Miracle, doing the same thing. I love it, I go out to feed and they want me to play with them. I’m way too old to have a cow for a playmate!!!
Daisy and Kodi, of course, don’t think this is cute at all and they will hide on the porch until the cows are back in their field. Daisy of course is always up to some kind of mischief. She has found out that squirrels live in our woods and she is always out looking for them, hasn’t caught any yet but I’m still waiting for one to end up on my back porch. Kodi thinks this is complete nonsense and will stay on the porch all day while Daisy is out hunting.
Hope your summer was as nice as ours. Enjoy our gorgeous weather and have a great autumn, I can hardly wait until Halloween!!!
