The cows had NO IDEA what was in store for them!!

This is Lilly, our COW DOG...I do believe she made probably 57 trips back in forth between the two farms today...she picked her cattle truck and ran along side it every trip it made!! She had no idea what on earth she was doing...but she tried.

This is what sucks the milk out of the cows teats...
Hmmm....Yes, I said "teats" all you non-farmers!...giggle giggle...

Speaking of "teats"...look at the milk bursting out of this one!
It took a village to get these cows to exit the parlor...
As the sun was setting in the west...the cows were settling down for a good nights rest at their new home.

There ya have it...this was our big day!
Now the fun begins!!

Random Pictures...Random Things...

Well, if any of you have seen the news, you have heard about the crazy weather we have had in the northwest...we have gone from non-stop snow to heavy heavy rains with flooding all around. We are lucky that we sit pretty high here on the farm, but others weren't so lucky. Here are a few shots, and this is a week after!
The park down the road...
