Christine NelsonHi, my name is Christine and I can’t stop looking at cows on Pinterest.

It’s a good thing I really don’t have much down time because I can see a lot of time being wasted just scrolling through pins of milk cow this and milk cow that.

We were originally supposed to get our heifer and steer sometime November or December, but the breeder pushed the date back to mid-January sometime.

It really isn’t a big deal to us, seeing as we don’t mind having less animals to care for. But at the same time I’m so anxious to finally have cows and see how life with them unfolds.

We have a long road ahead to finally start getting our own milk, but I’m chomping at the bit!

My sister gave me a lead rope and curry comb for Christmas and I can’t wait to put them to use.
