RIP Curly Pops your one of a kind..............

You came into my life and the blog way back here in October 2008
you stole me heart way back then.........
who knew you were going to be so special.........
you should have died then..............
you even starred on one of my cards...........
Sept 09
always coming to say hello at the garden fence........
March 11
even putting up with Boy Wonder's antics...........
April 2011
Your first baby "Cocopops" nearly killed you.......an expensive bill at the vets when others would have died..........
August 2012
Your second calf Cops...........
Feb 2013
You survived the drought and all the drought feeding............
Dec 2013

Jan 2014
your 3rd baby Lollipops..........
And you had your 4th baby earlier this year...........I took a photo of you when I introduced you to Jan@ The Little Red Hen but I can't find it............
Sadly your time came..........you were always going to die on the farm because we would never sell you..........I just never knew it was going to be so soon and from too much nice green feed...........
your one of a kind.........not to many get hand reared and I could always walk up to you in the paddock and give you a hug..........
in my whole life there is no other cow like you........
Curly Pops blog life is in this link..........
Catch you later.......

No we haven't started lambing yet but one of the neighbours has and this lamb didn't find her Mumma when they left the yards............
She moved in last night...........Slept in a box beside Boy Wonders bed last night...........been in the box in the kitchen all day........so far she is very quiet thank goodness...........no name yet......
This pic is for Teresa @ All things Vintage............raining again today.....yippee........I left work early as our dirt road is a mess at the moment..........someone took a truck down it weeks ago when it was not dry enough.......straight down the middle they went........we usually drive down the side to look after the road as we are lucky if it is graded once a year..........Teresa likes wet bush roads......Teresa you can have mine....you would have loved it this arvo.....a few kms back I had ended up out in the paddock after loosing it..........
