"Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain."

Little red

There are several different breeds of cows.  I really can't list them all because I don't know them all (I'm still learning about cows and farm-life and all sorts of things).  Jerseys, Guernseys, and Holsteins (red & white and black & white), those are the only ones I can come up with on my own.  At our farm, we have all black and white Holsteins.

But we also have a red and white calf right now.  It is pretty rare for us to get a red and white Holstein calf (Josiah told me that it is a recessive trait, just like red hair is a recessive trait in humans).  So somehow we turned up with a cute little red and white baby.

I like to call her Little Red.

And this is her mother, who is definitely black and white.
