I know that most of the troubles have not been caused by her, but by her owners. And the milking machine. I get that. Maybe in a few years, when the other parts of life aren't all so pressing, we can try again. It would be nice to get to do the chores with the kids, but they are simply too little now.
For right now, I want to focus on people, gardening, and school with time left for creating and cultivating beauty. I want to put a little more time into doing things that last and that bring joy than dealing with milk.
I am trying not to see this as a failure because I have learned so much. I have learned I do not want my life to revolve around a cow. :) One thing can be said about us, we're certainly willing to try new things and do things out of the ordinary! This decision hasn't been made rashly and we are both in agreement. Now that the decision is made, I hope she can go soon. Sweetheart put her on Craig's List yesterday and we have already had six people respond.
