ADA's Story

Meet ADA. She is a cow that wandered here from somewhere else a long time ago. It seems like she has always been here, but we are told that she was cownapped. Apparently, some of the ranch's wayward and wild cattle wandered across the creek, under the fence and through the woods to a neighbor's house where ADA (formerly known as Nadine) lived as a milk cow. The wandering and wild cattle, the story goes, broke her out and escorted her back through the woods, under the fence and across the creek to live as a calfsitter all the rest of her days. As you can see, she also does duty as an Ericsitter.


  1. Fun! Love reading your updates. If you can't tell, I'm a little blog obsessed. :) Have your heard of The Pioneer Woman? You would probably enjoy reading her blog--she lives on a ranch in OK.

    Nice checking in on you.

  2. Wow, Ree Rocks. Mark sat and read her blog for over an hour. Thanks for the link!

  3. It is wonderful to see Nadine (aka ADA) again and know you all are taking such good care of her. I feel faintly guilty but happy for her.

    Thank you.

  4. Don't feel guilty... we love her and a lot of kids have enjoyed petting her and sitting on her too.


We love to hear what you have to say. Keep your comments coming! Thanks.
