Cowlendar Girl – February

dollyI thought I start this years calendar with our cow Dolly, #1. She is lead cow and will follow wherever we go if you wave a protein cube under her nose. She always gives us a calf and we keep her heifers as replacements. A real sweetie.

Graduation Day – June #2

Graduation Day - June  #2

June graduated to joining the main herd…hence the new brand on her rear and tag in her ear. She grew really well with the extra nutrition the grower and finisher provided. Without it, dogie calves stay little and runty looking since mom isn’t around. She will run with the big girls now. Next up….a calf next summer (we hope).

Coming like rain…

We had a week of rain. When you live in the desert southwest¬†a half inch is big news. We long for, pray for, and rejoice when the thirsty land gets any moisture! We also got snow and still have some on the ground. In my Bible study I came across a verse in the Bible I’ve read before…isn’t great how the Lord can give you a verse and it seems new to you?? Hosea 6:3 says we acknowledge the Lord who is as constant as the sunrise and comes to us like the rain! Here in Arizona we have a bimodal weather pattern…long slow showers in the winter for about 40% of our year, and convective thunderstorms in the summer. Whether it’s a drizzly rain all day or the might and fearfulness of our summer storms we are thankful for every drop. May I look for the Lord as much and more than I look for rain.
