I have been on the hunt for a Guernsey for a while now, a hunt which I was about to abandon as impossible — Guernseys are so hard to find around here, and expensive when you do find them. Of course, the moment I stopped looking, I got a call from one of my cow buddies who had a very nice four-year-old cow and was willing to make me a very good deal.
Ellie May is such a big girl that we almost didn’t take her, but she is a sweetheart! Selena declared her an angel the moment they met. Ellie is due to calve this spring, and we are very excited to make some cheese with Guernsey milk!
