Secret



This is Secret, Donna's jersey cow. Donna is the one that got me blogging in the first place and I love to visit her blog every day. She always has something interesting to see or read. I love her cow. Donna has wanted Secret to breed and there have been several attempts with no results so far. She was thinking of selling her. I told her if I lived closer I would love to have her here to add to my farm animal pets. She seems so sweet and lovable. That got Donna to thinking, and she thought...why not have her for a pet?

We all know the majority of my animals are useless, but I love to have them, love to pet them, feed them, watch them. Its very soothing for my soul. Its therapy right in my back yard. I won't ever eat the goats, emus, or the pigs...they are just there for my enjoyment. The horse is a mini, so I can't even ride him, but it is still enjoyable to watch him and have him come up for a good scratching and a nuzzle as I kiss him on the nose. These small joys are why I keep them around. Without them I wouldn't be a happy as I am. I am hoping this is what Secret will give Donna, a peaceful feeling and some good company. :)

That is how I saved Secret from being sold...my adoration of farm animals as pets has influenced Donna to do the same for Secret.

This does my heart good, thanks Donna for keeping her around for us to see for years to come. I love that cow. :)

Go and visit Donna...she is always a good read.

Just Me

Good for you on keeping Secret where she belongs!I was raised to kill chickens and pigs for the meat, however, I just can't kill my babies! They supply eggs and that is enough. Everything to me is a pet! lol. Enjoy the video and your words. blessings,Kathleen

I just love it! I've read Donna journal for a long time now and I saw where she said you saved 'Secret'. Now I know the whole story. Animals are a joy. I really enjoyed your picture in the heading today with the little chick among the blooms. How precious. 'On Ya'-ma

You are right on!!Donna's blog is one of my favorites. Her and I are the same age by a week or two, so I compare our lives a lot in my little mind. But, I thought Secret was her pet. Marlene

I've lived my life feeling that farm animals have to be productive. It took someone with a different point of view to change my mind.

Cliff was so happy to hear he doesn't have to haul Secret around any more, either to a sale barn or to a bull.
