This kind of a COW...
Anyway, I can't have one unless I acquire at least 2 acres of land with a couple of pastures. Well, that's with a mini-Jersey cow, and not a full, or mid-sized model. That's right dear reader, there are mini-Jersey cows! Who knew? Well, I didn't know that until I voiced my desire to own a cow to my husband, who was completely amused by my revelation. He said that the only way he'd "let " me have a cow was if we had enough land and if there were miniature cows. He said this thinking no such thing existed. We certainly don't have enough land to support a cow, much less a miniature one, and our tiny piece of suburbia certainly isn't zoned for one. So no cow was in my future.
Then one day, I decided to type: "mini-jersey cow" into the ol' search engine and do ya know what happened? Surprise, surprise! This seemingly fictitious creature is real! Real I tell you! As in "it actually exists!" I couldn't wait to tell my husband the good news! He just shook his head in disbelief. Ha! Whose laughing now smart guy?! Well that's one down, now all we have to do is get the land. Which is easier said then done. So until such time as we are able to purchase enough land to support my dream cow (Lord willing) I will be reading up on the best breeder in my area, and how to take care of one, and how to use the resources the little milk machine well be providing. Much learning to do! I will be sharing what I am learning with you dear reader, in the coming months and maybe even years.
For now my eldest son just shakes his head, and my husband still thinks I'm crazy for wanting a cow - maybe I am. But....please. Don't try to cure me of my mad cow psychosis.
