I couldn't resist sharing this photo of Nougat, our first (almost) purebred Brown Swiss, who also happens to be Dan's new best friend.
Needless to say, she's getting way too much attention, which isn't exactly a good thing for a Brown Swiss. Can anyone else imagine Nougat at 1,500 pounds, both stubborn and über-friendly?
There might be hope, though. Nougat's mother, Skippy, is one of the most well-behaved new cows we've brought into the barn in a long time, despite being outrageously obnoxious as a heifer.
(In case you're wondering, Nougat's name came from her great-grandmother, Snickers, who was so named because she was as persnickety as they come. Her grandmother's name is Peanut.)
