Good bye April

With the end of the school milking programs it was time to take April the cow back home to Primrose Farm.  If a cow could smile I think she had a grin on her face to see all the other Jersey cows calling for her at the end of the barn. 

As I was getting ready to leave, my old friend Doc came over to say hi. Doc was part of the first team (his partner was Betsy) we purchased at the Farm. When Betsy could no longer work Doc moved over to Volkening Farm in Schaumburg to work with some other Belgian Drafts who were from the same Amish farm that he came from. A couple years later, Doc took up residence at Primrose Farm with yet another team of hard working Belgians. He's looking good and in shape for the coming plow season.
