I wish I could blog a sound byte. There is a cacophony of lowing because we have separated the cows from their calves today. This is actually the second time. We weaned before Katrina, then all the fences were demolished and weaning was for naught. The fences have been restrung and the weaning begins again, today. The calves are huge(almost the size of the cows). They are weakening the cows. The separation must be done and we are doing it in the kindest, gentlest way -- fence weaning. BUT, the mammas still want their babies and the babies want their mammas and they are all calling to each other. The distress makes me sad! My husband reminds me that this is the farm -- real life.
