And in the new paddock. Our neighbor’s visiting mum is still in the truck. Go mum!

… and, cows aside, I actually grew my own garlic! I’m so excited, I posted a photo of my lame braid. Let me tell you, though, it tastes FANTASTIC! Yes, garlic boring … cow moving exciting!

I really truly love it here.  I know my mother thinks otherwise.  She would prefer our crazy endeavors a little closer to home.   It’s beautiful here.  It’s a beautiful year.  The locals say there is too much rain, but we think there may be too much grass.  Our herd is getting bigger and our grazing is getting larger.  This has been a great year for the pasture.

I love this location because we have some of the finest ingredients in the world.  Gascony is where the good stuff comes from.  Great wine, Foie Gras, Floc, Bigorre Noir, Pousse Rapiere, Confit, our grassfed beef!  Duck, Duck, Goose!
