So, 7-397 is still doing her job. She’s getting up there in years. Seriously, she’s…14 years old. Why do I keep her? Well, she’s one unique cow. She’s calved well in poor conditions which is why I made a point of acquiring her.
Looking at her, I always think of the same word: dumpy. For kicks I decided to look that word up in the dictionary and here’s a set of “related” words: chunky, low-set, squat, squatty, stumpy. Yeah. That totally fits her. Of all my cows, she’s the squattiest, stumpiest, dumpiest. I mean that as a compliment. She’s not the smallest cow of the bunch, but what she’s got is thick, chunky, deep and low to the ground. Perfection? No, but she’s got a lot of good stuff to my eye. Of course, this photo doesn’t show her to her best, but for now it’s the best I’ve got.
Anyway, I just got a call from Greg Schulz telling me she had a bull today. Well, it’s not a heifer but it’s alive so I’m totally not complaining! Many thanks to Greg for taking such good care of my herd!!
