Spring is such a refreshing and beautiful time of year. After the long, gloomy and muddy winter, the sight of green grass and colorful flowers is a breath of fresh air.
We had a few sunny and warm days that we were able to put the cows out on the pastures. Grass is starting to grow, but slowly.
I couldn't resist the urge to grab my camera and capture the beauty and freshness of Spring.
Another B.E.S.T. season is in the books, and as we look back, we are always amazed at how far we have come. Each year we learn more about cows, farming, clipping, showing, other people and most importantly ourselves.
Another B.E.S.T. season has come and gone.
In some ways it feels like we were just beginning, and in other ways, it felt like the season would never end.
The beginning of the season went really quickly and we were handling the busyness very well.
The end of the season proved to be more of a challenge. We had several back-to-back show weekends and several back-to-back Sunday shows. It was taking it's toll on all of us, but we trudged through.
Once again, we attended every one of the B.E.S.T. shows this season.
We spent the last month getting ready for the Ohio Beef Expo and then crashing after the Expo.
With all the final preparations for the Expo and then all the extra laundry and sleep we had to make up after we got home, it didn't seem that there was time to fit in anything else.
But...life still goes on back at the farm.
All the chaos hit just as we were beginning to calve.
Hello! I am Heather... the city girl turned mom to manure loving country boys. My husband and I both grew up in the city, but spent weekends visiting grandparents in the country. We are first generation farmers who learn best by almost always doing things the hard way. I hope you enjoy following along with our adventures down on the farm.
