Helloooooo there!

Beulah Belle the Jersey Cow here!

Talk to your cows

Remember last winter when it was so cold and I swore I would never complain about the heat again? Well I LIED!!! It is HOT in Alabama! Our pond is down terribly low, but I still like to stand in it and that silly pig likes to wallow in the mud at the edges.

The dog seems to be in there as much as the ducks and geese! In fact, I sometimes think she is trying to round up the ducks and geese to keep them from drowning. Or maybe she just likes to watch them scatter. You never know with dogs.

In other news, the farmers say that half of our chickens are either trying to hatch eggs or have little chicks running around with them. So we're back to "No, Beulah, don't step on the chicks!" *Sigh* It's hard to be the cow.

Beulah Belle, it's good to hear from you again. I wish I could send you some of our cool weather from Nebraska. The rains here have been quite plentiful as well. All my garden water tanks are full from the more than normal rainfall we have been receiving here. We like to complain about the weather too. It's too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry, too windy, or always too something. I'm thinking that it won't be long now for the temperatures to start getting cooler so you hang in there and I hope to hear from you about the barnyard real soon, OK? ***** Have a great barnyard day.
