We'd been thinking about another family milk cow. Although Fay loves the Jersey breed, their milk, their colors, and cream. We just can't keep up with even a low producing cow. So I'd been doing some research and located a nice 6 month old Dexter heifer named Penelope up in Kent, WA. Shelley at Whistling Train Farm has a small unregistered herd of beautiful black cows.
You haven't lived until you're a country mouse driving through Seattle, WA suburb rush hour traffic with a bellowing heifer in the back of the truck.
But we survived and here's Penelope at her new home.
