I don't know whether to be happy, offended or hungry...

We had 2 pigs named bacon and pork chop.

As this is our first calf born here, we will probably just sell him when he gets grown....

BTW - We had a few steaks on the grill last night from 'ol T-bone....

He sure was a fine fellow...

No offense...

I always wanted a pig so I could name it Kosher, that way no one eats Kosher.

Looks like the cow has a bit of Milking Shorthorn in her.  I admire your quiet neighborhood.

Hi-Tech,

what will you do with her?
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

although she remained small, she gave quite an ammount of meat (small but VERY bulky)
