Milking a cow …

is a whole lot harder than milking a goat!  Our cow, Guinevere, has been nothing but patient.  It’s a good thing.  It only took me about a hour to milk her Sunday morning.  Sunday evening was much better.  This morning was a mixed bag.  I think she’s already put on weight.

Pictures later today.

We got the horses into the back pasture yesterday afternoon.  It didn’t go so well.  Al Bin jumped the ElectroNet and headed off to parts unknown.  Merlin went through the ElectroNet in hot pursuit.  We caught them and got them settled down and tried again.  So far, so good.  I can’t tell you how nice it is to not have horses in the yard.  I’d be perfectly happy leaving Al Bin in the yard, and I think he’d love to live there, but Merlin, nope, he’s a pain in the ass.

Off to make cheese, from Jersey milk this time.

Until later …
