I do. Nearly 9 years ago. I wanted a cow and came here asking for advice. I got it and it worked for me. jerseylovinliz was the first mod to congratulate me. It seems like just yesterday. Unfortunately Abbey has been gone nearly 3 years now. But we have her daughter, grand-daughter AND great-grand daughter, who are all three due to calve in the next 2 to 4 weeks.
6 Cows: Sophie - HoJo, Elvira - Angus/HoJo, Aggie - 3/4 angus, CiCi - purebred red/black angus, Cinco, red sim/angus, Totsy, Aggie’s 7/8 Red Angus, everyone preg or nursing RIP Abbey (Elvira's dam). You are missed.... RIP Georgia, Border CollieXCorgie, Trudy - GSD, Maltese/poodle Kaydee. 2 cats, Koi pond, flock of colorful opinionated chickens, a HUGE garden, 2 grown kids, 3 grandchildren, and us, 2 retired happy people working harder than ever. nowornever-debbie.blogspot.com/

You and I joined within months of each other. Nine years where have they gone? After reading your first posts I realized both your Abbey and my Asia were 2nd calvers when we bought them. Both of them gotten off Craigslist. Both of them gems! Unfortunately I had to go back and read my first post. Pam

Here are the first few of mine. I had to go look, too. The first I remembered off hand came a little later, something about shearing sheep. I did remember that I chimed in on another thread before introducing myself. Rachel

I was mrskk when I was first on the forum. Here is my first thread. I left for awhile when there was some fighting going on and when I came back, I created a new "me".
Edited to add: I honestly hate going back in time on the forum. So many people that have slipped away from my life, so many who have moved on to the next plane of existence. It is deeply saddening to me.

I clearly remember my first post...it will be six years ago this May. Feels like it was yesterday...I can still see clearly in my mind Dazzle coming back into her stall and how she looked and acted, sticking her tongue out and coughing ... I posted as I was concerned that Dazzle was having bloat issues. Haven’t thought about that episode for a long while ...sad as it plays back like a movie in my mind 😣 Most days I still miss Dazzy.

I first posted on the original KFC board back in 2002. Sadly all those posts from the first few years were lost. I was probably asking advice on which cow to buy as I was researching and shopping for my first cow then.

claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
