The Living Without Series

The Architect


The Dexter Cows

This summer we halter trained three Dexter cows.  It was a lot of work and a lot of fun.  We learned that we suck at building fences and we learned how to catch cows, because we suck at building fences.

The heifer with the calf stayed with us for two months and the little heifer came for one month.  They all went back to their ranch on July 1st.  Then the heat wave came and we decided not to halter train any cattle in triple digit weather.

I learned so much from these cows, I miss them.

Ellen and I filmed a little bit one day when we had to go catch Libby.  Libby is a two-year old heifer,  her calf, Lintel, was just three days old when he came to our farm.  Libby was a great cow and I let her out to graze around the farm sometimes because she never went far, but Lintel was just like a wild toddler and the second he got out he would take off running which meant Libby would run after him.  We spent a lot of time catching cows.  I didn’t spend a lot of time in the hair and make-up chair before going out to film the cow catching, so….it is what it is.
