Don't all fairy tales have that as the ending line?
Well this one does!
It seems like it was only yesterday....
A tiny, tiny wee one was born on the farm.
She was only the size of her mothers head. We guessed her weight to be about 25 pounds. Less than half of a normal newborn weight.
She immediately moved in to our hearts and also our den, where she lived in a playpen.
She grew and she thrived.....
and thrived and grew
The only problem was that even though Aurora grew, she was still so small compared to the big cows in the dairy herd. It became obvious that Aurora would not have a very good time trying to be just an average ordinary milk cow. In her mind she wasn't even sure she was a cow. After living indoors and being raised alongside dogs she was pretty sure she was a person, or at the very least a really big dog!
Some days I would let her out of her pen and she would follow me around while I did my chores. She loved to rub her head on your leg which could throw you right over if you didn't brace yourself!
If you lifted your arm and wiggled your fingers she would reach her head up for you to give her kisses!
So it was obvious that Princess Aurora was destined for greater things than being a "working girl."
That is when Auroras fairy Godmother entered the picture.....
she is kind and gentle and loving and she had been buying calves from us here and there. She fell in love with Aurora too and wanted her as a show cow. So it was decided that Aurora is going to go live with her fairy Godmother on her beautiful farm.
She will get clipped and polished and is going to have a pink shiny halter
(instead of a crown)
When she is not a fashion model at the county fair and dairy exhibitions, she will live in a green pasture with her new friends who are miniature Jerseys.
It really is a fairy tale!
So the day finally came and Princess Aurora was ready to be whisked away in her fairy Godmothers chariot......
Some people call them Featherlite trailers but we know it is really a chariot that belongs to the fairy Godmother...
I opened the door of the trailer and she walked right up the ramp and in to her new life.
and out of mine............
Sometimes love is letting someone go on to better things........
Soar high special girl!
Share your love and affection with all you meet and you will live
