North Woods Homestead, Registered Purebred Mini Jersey Trained Family Milk Cows & Rare Salmon Faverolles Chickens, north Idaho
She had already nursed and Buttercup was softly mooing at her. Snowflake is our sixth heifer in a row. Actually, we've only had heifers born on our farm since 2012!
She's the last calf to be born to us in the Midwest. We're doing a Wizard of Oz theme to honor the Kansas roots of our farm. Snowflake Flurry is named for the snow that falls on Dorothy, Toto, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, and the Scarecrow as they cross the poppy field and approach the Emerald City in the movie. The snow breaks the sleeping curse by the Wicked Witch. A flurry of light snow was blowing around as Snowflake was born. She even has an delicate white star on her forehead shaped like a snowflake!
Her registered name will be North Woods Snowflake Flurry. We call her Snowflake. A registered name has a breeder signifier that tells the farm that pared the cattle for breeding. Our signifier in the registry is NW. This tells everyone we're responsible for the quality of that cow. Our reputation is on the line with every cow we breed.
