Some of you may not know that we own a cow. That is right, one whole cow. Mark's grandfather owns many cows and they live on the farm that is behind their house.They breed the cows and sell the babies so that you can eat at McDonalds.
We got a call yesterday that one of Grandaddy Ewin's cows gave birth to twin female heifers. There is debate if granddaddy Ewin or Poppie (Mark's dad) named the calves, but either way I'm sure you can guess what the new additions were named.
Meet Ruthie and Maddie.
This is Ruthie and Maddie's momma with her 2 day old babies.
The girls of course got to meet the baby cows up close and personal.
The human Ruthie and Maddie were given a very limited walking area due to cow poop being everywhere. The bovine Ruthie and Maddie were allowed to roam free. Since we wouldnt let the human Ruthie and Maddie wander, we brought the babies up close for them to play with.You'll notice that Maddie "loving" the cow is similar to Maddie "loving" the goat in the zoo post. She only referred to the cows as "dog-ga" one time, which I see as progress!
Special thanks to Grandaddy Ewin for taking the girls to meet the new baby cows!
