This is my last post about Raspy. Today when I returned from getting my grocery I received the news that the buyer had come while I was away and bought three of the bulls calves and Raspy even though was smaller than the calf born yesterday was amongst those who were bought. It really made me feel sad but I knew that it was coming sooner or later. He was just starting to show some attitude and I hope that he will be well taken care of.  His little pen is still empty.  I never got the chance to take a photo of Raspy drinking from the pail.  JB


  1. Oh my...I had a lump in my throat as I started to read this post. I was thinking....well, you know. I hope Raspy has a nice new home.

  2. Thanks Kim, somehow I kind of had a special place in my heart for the little guy and now I have tears in my eyes.I guess I'm a big softee. JB

  3. I'm definitely a member of the softie group! I almost started to cry thinking like Kim, I guess. We all have a heart - how wonderful is that!
    I've almost caught up on reading your posts Julia. The kindling sure looked good - when I post my camping experience you will know how we gathered sticks in the woods to start a fire. When I saw the kindling, I thought - my that would have come in real handy. Glad to be back. Renee' was very happy that you wrote to her about her rug. Thanks Julia.

  4. Here is a big hug for Renee and you too. Looking forward to reading about your camping adventures. JB

  5. Oh, Julia! It's such a shame when they have to go, expecially when you have investede so much love and care in their lives! I could not be a farmer.
    I always think about the 4H kids around here who raise their animals for a year as their project and then have to give them up in the end. I guess that's 'farmer training'.
    Bless you, Julia, for having a kind heart!

  6. Good Luck Raspy, wherever you are!

  7. Hi Christine, actually Raspy is somewhere in Quebec. Thanks for stopping by. JB
