Animals we've loved

Some animals we've loved and lost or ones we've sold... but loved just the same.

 Zella, our very sweet Jersey cow.   Zella was only with us for 7 short months, but we made some awesome cheese, butter and other treats with her yummy sweet milk.   Zella injured her hips and was not able to stand on her own.

Simba was the best dog.  A pure Great Pyrenees, he was very loving, trusting and friendly.   We searched for him for nearly a week before we found that he'd been attacked by a bobcat or other large animal.  We all miss him still.

here he is with Bella, his buddy!

And here he is keeping watch over the chickens... or.. napping??  its hard work after all!
