Today was our trial date with a judge to hear our neighbor's complaint about why we should not have our cows, should not be able to do light agricultural activities, etc. on our property.
And a HUGE weight has been lifted. The judge said I have to look at this how a NORMAL MAN would look at it, not how your would look at it Mr. ___, and I believe that a NORMAL MAN would feel that they are NOT a commercial business and their cows ARE NOT obnoxious or offensive to residential use (emphasis added based on the Judge's tone of voice during that statement).
So we will not be having to sell cows, Jessie can keep her 4-H projects with no problems, and we can keep doing what we love to do. Which is work awfully darned hard most days.
I'll be the brunette doing a booty dance around the property line if you happen to be driving by:) So don't be alarmed!
And now I'm off to clean my house really, really good.....the kids left the basement door open yesterday and there was a RAT in the house this morning. I am embarassed to say I screamed like a girl when I saw it, and jumped up on the table. But Todd came to the rescue with his 22. Tyler's cat and the 2 barn cats were absolutely no help at all. They are entirely too well fed.....
I'll be back to visit you all later,
