    That's cool! I like swapping for things. Good luck on learning all about cow care.

    Thanks I've been wanting to learn for several years now. It's hard to find someone willing to teach you. I could just try on my own and learn by the seat of my pants like iido with most things but not when it comes to animals.

    You are onto a very good thing there and I'm not just talking about the treats ;) Are you thinking of getting your own cow(s) down the line?

    My wife gets a call from her Amish friend about some baked goods, that she made this morning. Apparently, she does pretty well selling fresh baked goods everyday. People from around town stop by to buy what she has made.

    Fresh baked goods, eggs and goats milk. Well my wife comes home with these goodies :) my wife's Amish friend would not take a nickel for any of it. She said its strange that pecan pies don't sell very well, but apple pies are a big seller What's wrong with people around here? Pecan pies are like the best of the best.

    I have no idea who wouldn't like pecan pie. Some strange people around here, who don't know what good, I guess.

    Some people find it to be cloyingly sweet. I, on the other hand, find that a warm slab of Pecan Pie rates right up there with good home made apple pie, tiramisu, chocolate chip cookie pie, home made blueberry pie, warm home made pumpkin pie. Any one hungry???

    Pecan pie freezes well, so it doesn’t spoil while you are eating those other goodies. LOL
