Want another cow?

We received a call the other day from a rancher in our church.  They asked, "Want a cow?  We took a bunch to market and this one is blind in one eye, so they won't take her."   Our answer?  Sure!

It has been fun watching our little farm grow.  I never thought we would own a cow.  But, now we have 2!  Ferdinand is growing steadily.  He's so cute and I love his brown, black and white colors!  Our new cow we named Charlay (the ch has an sh sound)  She is part Charolais and part Angus.  Our plan is to have fresh beef sometime soon.  But, until then we are learning about owning a big cow and it's been fun!

Welcome to Storybook Farms Charlay!



  1. What will you do with the cow? Will you keep it as a pet or eventually send her to the butcher?

  2. We are praying about adding a couple of cows to our farm too. We want to sell the milk with the veggies, eggs, baked goods, etc. It's fun living on a farm!
