In 2005 we got a little red heifer; which I blogged about after the fact: Genetic Hiccup.
She was born before I started this blog, so I didn't get her in here at birth. But here's Rosie's picture:
Here is Rosie with her red calf, which was a bull I believe, I can't even remember. Either it was a bull or it turned black eventually. I strongly believe it was a heifer that turned black.
A bit before Rosie calved we had this red heifer calf come along:
However you can see the black markings on her nose and around her eyes. I wish she'd stayed like this but she eventually, over the course of 7-8 months, turned a solid black with just a red tinge in her ears and on her udder.
Rosie herself died of some mysterious malady a few years ago; back when Ellen was only 5 or 6. Ellen was extremely upset over this and cried and cried. She kept asking for another red cow. Over time she calmed down a bit about it; but still occasionally mentions getting another red cow.
I told her we couldn't afford to just up and buy a red calf or cow, it would just have to happen again. And I didn't want to tell her the odds.
But looky what DID happen just 3 or so days ago:
I know God still answers prayers with little miracles like this. And for that I am thankful!
