Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Daphne's Big Day Out

Hey everyone! Things are really hopping around here - I think I'm a little behind in my comments but I'll catch up soon. Another big day today but here is some adorableness for your Thursday. It's Daphne - isn't she a doll?

She went on the longest walk of her whole life yesterday. She was a champ. Doesn't she have beautiful markings?

Then she got tired and laid down under her momma, Debbie.

She gave me a lot of cute looks.  Daphne is one big baby - I think she is the tallest baby we've ever had here. She is going to be a superstar milker for sure.

In other news - we've been having all kind of problems with wasps. The first thing that happened to me yesterday was that I got stung - it was in my shirt! I'll leave it to your imagination what happened. Then our poor Kai got all stung up in her mouth and face! It was a very sad day for everyone. I applied a "12 ounce cold compress" to my sting and we gave Kai some Benedryl (per instructions from the vet). I think we are both going to live.

Here's hoping for a less lively day today!  Happy Thursday everyone!

CUTE! I love how quickly baby animals can get around. Our calf does race-horse training laps around the paddock, with momma cow running behind mooing at him to come back!

.... and wasps suck, I hate them, poor you and poor Kai, I hope you find their nest....
