Cows that didn’t make the nice list in 2019

Let’s be real here — while my cows ARE adorable AND super affectionate, not ALL of them are amazing. There are a few assholes in the group and tis the season to blast them and put their numbers on the naughty list! Maybe “assholes” is a bit strong but….. nope! It’s accurate. This list came together in less than 5 minutes and includes a few newbies, have you seen my 2018 or 2017 list of naughty cows? The following NINE jerk cows, in my opinion, need a lump of coal in their stall: #179 isn’t necessarily naughty but I’m disappointed…

Okay, confession. I’ve been kicking it thru my book list, however it has been a lot of series. Janet Evanovich and Michael Connelly… I’ve got a thing for criminals being captured.

The BEST barn books – fall 2018

Chores have taken a turn; I’m doing more on the farm from the tractor seat and by myself; working dirt and hauling manure, milking cows and feeding heifers. I love it – but what I’ve found I love more is listening to my books on audio while I do my chores! I have always enjoyed reading, but then the job and babies took priority and finding time to sit and fall into the latest novel just didn’t happen… until I tried my first book on audio, and then I was hooked. I want to share my current 5 favorites with…

The big day is almost here and before that jolly ‘ol elf decides to spoil my Ladies with extra grain, I’ve made a list. Yeah THAT kind of list, and trust me — I’ve checked it twice!! There were some cows around the farm this year that have not been very nice. This decision was made by the elf in charge here on the farm (…me) and no outside opinions were considered by the other elves. You might think, “Wow! I thought she was a sucker for all her animals” but dear friend, it must be pointed out that I…
