Norman was healing up from pneumonia. He may look skinny, but he is a Jersey cow. They are naturally ribby and boney in the hip. Still, I had no idea what I was doing. Education is essential for an animal of this size. This is the reason 4-H has mentors.
We kept Norman until we were sure he was healhy.
Loaded up and headed to a new farm.
I spent my days wearing headsets blaring full blast to drown out dog barking while I painted and made repairs. We didn't have money to spend on a new ladder, so I did my best with this heavy old oak beast.
