so after finishing my morning job at the farm, and getting the okay from my boss on campus i headed to preston for the day to help out farm boy.
and i guess i need to back track just a tad, because as i was hesitating to go to preston for the day farm boy pulled out a secret weapon and offered lunch at mis amores (which is only the best mexican joint in cache valley), and we all know i can not turn down good food so i was in for sure after that.
after thirty minutes in the car i pulled into the driveway, and found not only farm boy but his mom, grandma, and sister all hanging out in the house. farm boy and i decided to go get lunch before working on anything, and before i knew it we had convinced everyone else to come along as well. they all acted pretty busy, and his little sister had just barely eaten lunch, but in the end they kind of reluctantly decided they would come, and i thought none the wiser about it.
we all piled into his mom's car and headed to lunch, and farm boy quickly started telling me about a "new addition" to the farm that i had to see asap. he proceeded to direct his mother to one of their family's barns where this "new addition" was located, so i could see it before lunch.
it was a muddy wet day and us ladies didn't exactly wear appropriate shoes to walk through a barn. we gave the suggestion that this wasn't the best idea, but farm boy insisted we see, so we all headed into the barn, and at first i was super confused. i didn't see a thing new or different, until farm boy directed me to the other side of the barn where a small baby jersey calf was hanging out in a pile of loose straw. and i was ecstatic!
you see farm boy is a holstein cow lover (he even has a shirt that is solely covered with a giant holstein cow face) while i on the other hand am a jersey cow lover! don't know the difference? see below...you have a very younger version of me showing a jersey calf at the indiana state fair, and then a slightly younger farm boy posing with his favorite holstein ladies on his families dairy in preston.
watch. enjoy. and don't laugh too hard when i ask for the millionth time "is this real?".
