They are adorable....Harriet spends most of her day grooming Norman, he soaks it up.

At milking I get my 2 treat pails. Norman follows me to the south side of the corral and gets his treat in the bull bucket. Close gate behind me to the north side where Harriet is patiently waiting for her truest and milking...she can be milked anywhere...no fuss..no kick..just stands..nibbles..milked.. I do put the token rope on her collar just in case she got spooked. It is hooked to the stantion which I never use...

It's a basic setup but the animals seem to thrive in each other's company. I separate about a week before calving and let them back together once the calf gets a handle on life...depends on the bull..experience has been though here if a bull starts to show any signs of unusual aggression it's freezer camp no questions asked...life is too short to fuss with that, right?

I want a doting wife like Harriet! I once said to my husband, "I wish I had a wife," to which he replied, "Me too."

Yeah we say that around here much ourselves..lol..but I think the solution is hired domestic help...seems to work out much better...at least works well here. :)

I love your red headed step cows, Ron! Too funny!

I got my stickers....I think about a week or so ago. With the grand girl around, I lost track of time. When we get our new (used) pick up, I expect to stick them on the tailgate, otherwise they are going in our milking parlor, after I paint the walls with milk paint. They are really spiffy! Good quality.

Can we still order decals? Or was it just a one time deal?

They can still be ordered, Charlene. It's an ongoing thing.

charlene, the decals are so adorable! very, very nice quality and look so good applied. i have never even had a bumper sticker in my life, but it just love these! admittedly i did go a little crazy with the decals on this trailer.

we got the larger size for our trailer to put on the side panels, as we don't have much large area of smooth metal so have to have more of a bumper sticker rectangle. we got 4x7 i think instead of regular 3x5. but measure first as they can do them any size you want (but some restrictions to keep design proportional).

and they aren't too girly so my manly man hunky hunk was fine with them. still working on nick to embrace them on their trailer ;>

I love them all! I have one, from MaryJane. I can't really chose a favorite. (But I do like the Jersey girl one...)
