Really? Are you serious? Just replace her?
For some people, I guess that is the easiest course of action when something like losing Dilly happens.
I get furious when I hear that sometimes. How could I possibly replace Rudy, with his unique character…lost him last summer, but am not eager for a new baby turkey in the same manner Rudy came to us. Plan to purchase a few in a month or two to eat for Thanksgiving and have some for family members; I know, therefore I am reconciled to the outcome.
Could I go out and buy a cow or calf to replace the Brown Swiss above? No, I couldn’t. Okay they could fill a spot in our herd, but not replace another.
When I was told I could, by an acquaintance that I thought understood this lifestyle, I just told them that maybe they need to really SEE the people that we are and not just LOOK at us as fools for working so hard , only to have that possible type of outcome .
