Ava

Hmm.. I grew up around horses... never had a cow....  well there is a guy leasing the land from the previous owner and he has cows... most of them are scared and run away... except this one..
I slowly walked up to this black and white cow.. which now I know she is called a black baldy...
she's staring me down like that old saying "a cow looking at a new gate" so I get within like 3 feet of her and I'm staring back... so i put out my hand and touched her...
I was waiting for her to bolt.. but she didn't.. she came closer... So I got to lovin' on her and petting her... and I gave her a name.... 
I have called her Ava.. I was told she was an "old" cow...

Il Cavallo Ranch


So we had been living in our horse trailer for a while.. a good six months.... but, that's besides the point..
we had looked and looked and looked for a place to buy... and found nothing..
until one day... we drove by an old dairy farm that finally came up for rent...
it was perfect..  250 acres of pasture land.. and sooooo many old barns.. we fell in love... and after a few months of living here.. we bought it...
and after some long deliberation of names.. we decided to call it "Il Cavallo Ranch" which is italian for the horse ranch...
