Big Hole Village Cows
Just a little note to report that we have purchased cows as promised for Big Hole Village primary school. The right to name the cows was won by Diana D (congratulations and thank you for supporting us). The naming of the cows, there are three, is a great privilege and Diana thought carefully. We are happy to announce that the cows, which are actually just calfs at the moment are named, Luna, Stella and Astrid. Name tags will be made for them soon. As yet we have been unable to get a photo of the beautiful cows, but I promise to post them as soon as I get them. (The picture above is not of the actual cow).
The cows will allow the children to learn the valuable skill of taking care of livestock. The cows will also assist in the upkeep of the vegetable garden, plowing the fields and providing manure. They will also contribute to generating an income through the selling of excess crop and the sale of offspring (if they have babies).
