Animals require a lot of work (especially for a reformed suburbanite like me). Morning and night. Weekends too. Insatiable appetites for food. Deworming. Trimming hooves. Cleaning out manure. Fortunately A is a great partner with whom to share the work. The animals: A buck (Curry), search two does (Lily and Girlfriend) and two kids (Shaka and Khatuk). And a zebu (miniature cow) called Princess. I’ve fallen in love with Shaka – he’s cuddly and nuzzley. But I may have to eat him later on this year. That’s the reality of agriculture.
