Milk Cows and Weeds

This is Sweetie. She is a half jersey half holstein heifer. We anticipate her first calving to be with the next 4 weeks or so. Our neighbor, who has sort of adopted us over the Summer, bought her to keep at our place. We had both been looking for a milk cow, but neither of us need all of the milk we'll get. So far it has worked out really well. Sweetie's temperament matches her name. Dad says that she's the best heifer he's ever come across. :-)
The rest of the pictures are of some of the milkweed down by the pond. My youngest sister has decide to use some as hair for her dolls that she made out of balls of dirt earlier this week. :-) I think those will look really neat if it works. :-)
