We were lucky to buy Snickers as a young heifer in 2014. She has grown into a good-looking momma cow. She has blessed us with two heifers who are now pregnant with their first calves. This past fall she produced her first bull calf. He is growing well.
Snickers is always attentive to our whereabouts. If she feels neglected, she will let us know – loudly! She leads the rest of the herd to us just in case there is a treat to be had. (four-legged composters!) We make sure to save lettuce, spinach, squash, carrots, cabbage and more just for her delight.
We have watched her grow and mature to a calm, level headed cow. She loves her back scratched and will eagerly take treats from our hand. She was the boss momma until recently. Apparently, Snickers is now second in command. She seems content with the change, and we are content to be her farmers.
