The folks buying the cows drove down yesterday from north of Spokane and we loaded up the milk stanchion, cows and Oscar this morning. I was surprised at how much weight Oscar has gained in the two weeks since he was born. When he was first minutes old I easily picked him up and carried him, but I had to have help this morning and he still felt very heavy.
I know they are going to a good home, and Maggy will be happy they have a bull there for her. But it was still hard to say good bye to them, especially Matilda who was my favorite from the moment I saw her.
We can see the big pasture from the house and I am in the habit of glancing out the window to check on them several times a day. Caught myself glancing out there more than once today. Eventually the majority of the goat herd will move into that pasture I will be glancing out the window to check on them. But for now its just an empty pasture with only memories.
