So you can imagine my surprise when I found my little blog mentioned in his post the other day, "Some Great Farm Blogs to Improve My Farming." Not only was I astonished--I was completely humbled! Brent and Jean are doing what I wish we could do. I'm afraid our pastures will never look like theirs. I have had to accept that IRG is not within our capabilities at this stage of our lives--but Brent's perspective on pasture is the ideal that I keep in mind.
Here's what Brent wrote:
I'll grant you the cute cows; I know that's true! I just didn't realize that us defeating our challenges could be inspiring. Although I find myself hesitant to accept such an accolade, it does encourage us to keep taking on the challenges. And maybe some day, we'll have them all figured out and I can finally change the title of this blog to what I should have called it in the first place (if I'd only had a brain!) . . .Adventures on Zephyr Hill Farm goes into amazing details on the ins and outs of milking and running Dexter cattle for the smallholder. Watching her defeat the challenges of her farm is always inspiring. Cute cows, too.

Meanwhile, thank you, Brent, for including me in such heady company. Now I'm heading over to check out some more of those blogs you listed.
