Early this morning we followed Marcella, Rosalin, Luis, Alis, and his friend to the "barn" to milk the cow. As you can see, Don sat right down and started to milk and seemed to be enjoying the whole experience. Marcella is looking on with a grin on her face because Don's efforts are producing a small stream of milk!
Rosalin, Marcella's Mother, is the super milker of the family and the one who usually does the job.
She is a two fisted milker who can fill a 5 gallon plastic container in no time! We are very impressed and love their sense of humor. They truly enjoyed watching Don milk, as did I.Marcella's Son, Alis, was busy playing computer games on the phone with his friend. He is very sweet and later in the day while I was Skyping with my friend Ginny, he came by with this beautify Hydrangea!
Finally, when the humans have most of the milk the little calf gets to have some breakfast. Roselin says that in 4 days the calf will be out in the pasture eating grass!Locked out for the day!
