We sold three of our cows today. Among them was Daisy, the one we've had since we started out. The one who has shared her beauty and milk with us so generously. The mothership.
Fortunately, they're not far away, just down the block really, which is comforting for tearful children who were sad to see her go. And it's strange, it's a bit like closing a chapter, it seems like I've been doing that a lot lately.
We are left with one cow, young Buttercup, who will have a calf in spring, so I guess we're not closing the book entirely.
Thank you, Daisy, for all your sweetness and patience!
