Fergie and her calf Her Highness along with Contessa Cue-tee and Hello Dolly have gone to Norman and Jenny on Bruny Island and we wish them all the best with two of our favourite cows. They are the last of our short legs and Mark was very fond of both girls as they were his milkers. We know the girls will have a lovely time on Bruny Island, and will soon have Jenny trained on how to look after her milkers
Fancy Free and her steer Happy Go Lucky have gone to Mark, Rosemary and their family at Margate. Rosemary is itching to get milking also and Mark put the time into training Fancy Free while he milked the other two. Good luck with your endeavours with Fancy Free and I am positive she will give you some lovely milk for the family to enjoy.
KP Bongo Beat and her calf Hip Hop, along with KP Hallmark haved joined Chris and Louella at Craddoc. Chris actually purchased Hallmark as a Christmas gift for Louella and when she found out she decided to purchase an unrelated cow and calf as the start of their Dexter herd. They join their other two Dexter heifers on their gorgeous property, and I am sure they will get as much pleasure from them as we have and produce lovely calves into the future.
So I am a bit sad today that the girls are gone, but very grateful that we got there and back safely and the cows all seem to have settled into their new surroundings. All up we did an 800 km round trip which took just over 12 and a 1/2 hours. Boy did I sleep well last night.
