I think my pinky fingers almost froze off while I was milking the cow this morning. That wind just cut right through me while I milked, chilling me to the bone. I must remember to wear gloves when I am draining the hose because the cold makes my hands ache. I'm so grateful for thermal underwear and wool socks! The high today was forecast at 27F. I got two eggs. Ruby has been giving just about 3 gallons a day for several weeks now. I missed her heat cycle once again, so she's still not bred. <sigh> At least her daughter, Emerald (Emmy), is assumed to be pregnant, and is due near the end of June. I hope Emmy is a good milker, and has a nice beefy calf.
