 :jumpjoy: :whoohoo: :reddancer: :whoohoo: :jumpjoy: I am just to happy right now. We went to get my girl today. She wasn't the easiest to load LOL!!! But she made it!!! Here is some pics of her here. Our Mini Spirit chased her around the field so we had to shut the gate. It was funny but poor girl she didn't think it was. I am like a kid at Christmas.  :jumpjoy:

 :udder: :udder: :whoohoo: :itsagirl: I started laughing when I read that the mini was chasing her ...she has no idea what that is, probably never seen a horse or a little horse before....  :smily961: They will get used to each other and then get along after a while...I cant wait to bring Maggie in but she wont be brought in till January and she will freshen in March...Hopefully they have rebred her for you...  :whoohoo: :itsagirl:

:jumpjoy: Thank you everyone. Yes Kathy Spirit thought he was King poop on turd island. It was funny!! I had to hand milk her tonight YUK!!!! Sean is going to get my milker set up in the barn tomarrow. Nic I really do not want them on her though it would make life allot easier for us. I bet the boys would need no coaxing to latch on either. And she is such a sweet girl that I wouldn't be surprised if she let them. Sondra I never wanted a cow. LOL!! This girl just stole my heart!! That face just makes me melt.  :loveface:  I am so excited about making my own butter. And not have to pay almost 4.00 a gal for milk. Sean still is not on board with the whole cow thing yet. LOL!! Though he thought it was hilarious when I slipped in cow poo and almost fell.  :hehe:

She's very pretty, for a cow!  I like Jerseys because of the City Slickers movie,  :hehe:.  But there's something classic about the Holsteins, too.

Ben's trying to talk me into cows, bless his heart...I just dunno.  For one...eating a pet?  (cause you know pretty much anything you have to feed you wind up naming)  For two...milking something every day.  Oy.  I'd rather be lazy and pay the $4!

Well since I brought her home Brittney and I have been hand milking.  :smily961: She is not easy to milk. She is a good girl but man it took forever. Sean and I could not get the milker running. I wanted to scream.  :hehe: Well we got it going and I got to milker in more than half the time.  :newclap: :newclap: Though we have to bring her to the garage to do it. That is a long walk from the barn.  :hehe: But it beats hand milking.

About a gal and half. It became calf milk because I was so excitted I didn't wash the can out before I started. LOL!!! It had some dirt from sitting. Tonights milking will be for us. Sean walked into the field and she followed him everywhere. so he decided to run back up the field and she ran behind him when he stoped she did. It was way to cute. And also the one quarter she just lost. I have been miuking it for a few weeks well I have been milking it everytime I go in with her and I am proud to say that it nolonger looks like yellow water it is looking like milk. Though from them not milking that quarter out for awhile the milk is very low in that quarter. But I am going to continue to milk that one out By hand on the ground and hope that when she freshens she will be 3 quarters instead of two.  :newclap:

It is very cute, and the best way I know to teach her to chase people-sometimes they stop, somtimes they don't.

Sondra I did get three tubes of Tomarrow to infuse her when I go to dry her up. I could get some today and try to treat it now. Nic I could treat her now but would have to throw her milk away for I believe for 3 days. I am in alittle bit   :shocked: That the bad quarter is starting to produce something more than the yellow water colored stuff she has had for about 2 months or more. Boy wouldn't the people I bought her off of just crap to find out that she may become a 3 quarter cow. Ohwell they gave up on it. I just kept milking it out everytime I worked I figured what would it hurt. Hoping it comes back.  :icon_biggrin:

you only have to worry abt throwing out that quarter which you are doing anyway.   I would treat while your milking it out.

Update on the milking. Now that the milker is up and running I am in heaven except for having to get up a half hour earlier than I usually do.  :hehe: It takes a half hour start to finish That is also staining the milk and cleaning the equipment. Rosie is giving us a gal and Half a milking. Sean bought me my cream separator so we are now freezing the milk until I have enough to run it through the cream separator and make my first batch of butter. Right now I am having a time finding a farmer to sell me a round bale of Hay silage. And Alfalfa is not an option due to not having enough rain here. No one is selling it. I couldn't even find it for the goats this yr. So they are on Alfalfa pellets. So at this moment I am soaking Alfalfa cubes in water and trying to get her to eat this. Hopefully I can find a farmer that would be willing to sell me a round bale or two and just ration it. just to make her happy. Other than that I love having her.And I think Sean is starting to like her more. I knew that sweet face would get to him. LOL!! I still have not treated that quarter I am still milking it out There is not much in it at all. I have to go in town to get something to treat it and have not had the time.

Congrats on the milking  getting easier.

Debi I know what a blessing it is to have the milker going. When I was milking the goats it wasn't hard at all by hand milking. But Rosie was a different story LOL!! Thats allot of cramped hands.  :smily961: She has small teats so it was like milking a big goat with allot more milk. Hay silage is what some call wet hay. It is alfalfa baled in a round bale while it is still wet. Then it is wrapped in plastic. Cows love it and it helps get more milk production out of them. Not that we need more milk but the reg hay and grain is not making her happy at all and she cries even after you give her the hay. I feel so bad she is used to it and I hate that I can not give her some. I would appreciate it if you could ask around. I may advertise to see if I can find some. Its like pulling teeth around here to find hay and Alfalfa. Sean and I are going to put the field across the road in Alfalfa so we can have it for my goaties and for Rosie. Hopefully in the Spring for a fall cutting, for our first year.

We have a small freezer that is empty for the milk. Yep 3 gal is more than I thought I would get.  :hehe: If she happens to get back the other quarter when she freshens we are going to have lots of butter. Right now the boys are getting about half of it so that works out just fine. But when they are off the milk. I will have more than I need. LOL!! I have to laugh I went over to give her her afternoon feed and she thought it was time to get out to be milked.  :smily961: She kept walking out of the stall and going to the gate turning around and mooing at me. Then she would walk back in the stall and moo. and then back to the gate. She is very demanding. I love it!!

Kathy I do not mind.  :icon_biggrin: Sondra hope you can get one of Kathys girls or find one around your area. You know even if you find a good two quarter cow to milk would probably be a good cow for you. and alittle cheeper on your budget. 3 gals a day out of Rosie. I think is a good amount for what we are going to do with it. They sent 7 more two quarter cows to the sale barn.  :icon_cry: Only one was not very good to milk. The rest were good girls.
