Providence's Perpetuation Provisions: New Calf "Clara"

And again, the Lord in His graces and mercies granted another calf, this one to our cow Casi Blanca (whose dam is Amistosa); and she too is a little heifer calf. She has a little brown island on her forehead, so we decided to call her Clara, named after MontaƱa Clara, meaning "light-colored mountain," which is an islet in the northeastern part of the Spanish Canary Islands.

Here is her picture:

And her video:

We are continuously grateful for the safe and healthy deliveries of the new calves. And we pray for God's continued guidance in our lives as we work to separate from the world unto Him and His prescribed way of living -- the way of life He invented.

How are y'all getting by in this drought? Hay down here in the Austin area is getting very expensive; and we have no grass.

Hi Chris,

By God's graces, we're getting by. He has granted our ground water to still be available for the cows, and our catch-water tanks still have water in them. We're very grateful.

Same here with the hay and grass.

Thanks for saying hi.
