Two make overs...a cow and a tree
You all know that Raquel has a cute little heifer by the name of Rogue...well, she's still cute but weighting in at 1,085lb is beyond little. Being that she is mostly black, her fur has a tendency to turn reddish and this was not acceptable according to my daughter. So after asking around if dying livestock is doable and frown upon, the consensuses is, yes is very much doable and no, people, especially ones who compete with they're animal do it all the time, you just can't do it while in the competition, you have to do it a few days before. So, Raquel decided to give her a dye test to see, A, if it would work and B, for how long. Yes it worked beautifully and it only lasted about 2 and a half weeks.
The beautification of a heifer...
She's moo tiful
Time to mosey on back home with my new look
Alright, time for my "I'm too lazy to put away and decorate every occasion" tree.
I put huge purple and pink Gerber daisies and smaller white daisies on it.
I tied a purple floral ribbon around the base and put some
purple accents around.
I think when summer comes around I just might add a bug or two. Maybe some dragon flys, lady bugs and bees..who knows? Everyone have a great springy day~
