Training a Cow

Jessica’s gone from cowering under a tree in our pasture woods to this.  We had to deliver water to her for over a month while patiently working to train her onto a bucket.  Amazing what tasty treats will do for training both dogs and cattle.  She hangs with the flock now and sleeps by the hutch, although we’ve never seen her in it.  Or the barn.  Once the grass is gone, she should be eating hay in the barn like everyone else.  If we need to encourage her to go in there, we’ll lead her in with a bucket of sweet feed.  Oh, and we’ve named our chicken Edwina Scissorbeak.  Thanks Tiffany!  🙂

    She’s tiny, we were just wondering when she’ll reach her full weight. She’s about a year old now.
