Sometimes I forget that we have a cow. We do, remember?
Her name is Karlek, pronounced "KEAR-lic", which means Swedish for love because of that heart on her forehead.
It's a pretty accurate name when we read Paul's letter to the Corinthians where he defines love.
He begins, "Love is patient, love is kind..."
This is Karlek taking a nap. She loves to sunbathe.
Enter these little boys who love to run and jump and twist.
Can you imagine what happens next?
They use our beloved cow as a launching pad, a king-of-the-hill mountain, a racetrack. Both Hubby and I have witnessed this and it is hilarious. Karlek just lays here and chews her cud (digests her dinner) and the boys, Woody and Buzz, have a wonderful red and white playground.
This is very entertaining but also very exciting for this hand-milker. It takes a pretty calm heifer to lay there and allow those goats to jump all over her.
Ahh, Karlek, you ARE patient, you ARE kind.
