I've been neglect recently in giving you an update on Holy Cow and I'm sure you've been wondering. 

My fears of him being malnourished and too skinny have long since subsided because check out the milk gut on this guy.

Whoa duuuude, lay off the sweet feed! 

But seriously, I love this cow more than probably what is socially acceptable to love your livestock.  I can't help it though, I mean look at him. 

I'm still working on teaching him to sit and shake.  It's going as to be expected for a bovine at his age.  Some tell me it may be impossible for him to sit due to logistics and anatomy and blah, blah blah but I've always been one to push the envelope so if there's ever a cow that will sit, it shall be mine.  

We're also working on halter training him so that eventually I can put his halter on him and take him for walks around the countryside.  Wouldn't that be delightful?  The neighbors already tend to look at me funny when they drive by and see me DRAGGING Holy around the barnyard because someone is slightly resistant to being led on a halter.  But for now I win because I'm a tough farm girl and can still drag him around.  Yes, it gives me an awesome upper body strength workout.  Give him a few months though and we may be putting those mule/donkeys to work letting them halter break him.  Were you aware that donkeys are used to halter train calves?  That's totally why I got them...not.   

Holy and I wish you a Happy Moo-nday!
