Marigold at Home


Marigold is at the farm now, settling in nicely and winning hearts everywhere. She's as friendly as a puppy, running to meet you if you come near her little enclosure, and eager for pats (and sweet feed.)


Jerseys really are some of the prettiest of cows . . . dainty and almost deer-like . . . if not always lady-like.


And in other news . . . the bad weather report . . .



The front that we saw moving in yesterday morning did, indeed, bring snow.

This is what we had by 10 pm.

Vickie, I absolutely adore Marigold!

As for this weather, we go from hanging out sheets on the line on Saturday to snow on the ground a couple of days later - but as I always say, "welcome to the mountains of North Carolina - the weather is always interesting!!!"

She a beauty Vicki! I'm so jealous!

Marigold is adorable. When I was a kid, I always wanted a cow...thought it would be great. Of course, I didn't really think about the work getting feed and hay to it, keeping up with the milking, etc. Still wouldn't mind having that face greet me in the yard every day.

As for the snow...well, you know how I feel. :-D

Your Marigold is lovely! I scrolled down and saw a lot of interesting posts. Thanks for sharing those with us. Thanks for your visit to Lillehammer. Next time I am going to tell something about the turf on the roofs of many Norwegian buildings.

What a sweetie pie! And Marigold is such an adorable name, too.

Years ago we had a very tame Brahma heifer who, if I sat down by her, would lay her big horned head in my lap.

Marigold is from a herd where all the ladies are flowers -- her mother is Rhododendron; her half-sister is Silverbell.

It's still snowing off and on. Arrgh!

Oh, what a sweet, darling face Marigold has!

We're supposed to get snow here tonight. I guess Spring in the mountains, where ever those mountains are located, is the same; unpredictable!

What a pretty little girl! Looks like she has already come in and stolen your hearts. :-) She will be such a valuable member of the farm. It's warming up again here, but we had some hard freezes, and some snow (nothing stuck though). Winter has worn out it's welcome, I think.

Vicki, funny thing about the Brahma heifer. Last time I visited my Aunt Sylvie in Florida she had a pet Brahma bull. She used to go out in the field and pet him under the chin like a cat. He loved it.
