Jenny-the chubby yearling


Ms. Jenny, even though she has developed a rather substanial rear end, is not headed for the freezer this year. She has endeared herself as Rauhallinen Farm mascot and hangs out at the end of the drive, back fenceline, and of course, wherever there might be corn and apples. She is not afraid when I pull in with the RAV4, get out and unload groceries, etc. In fact, she barely looks up. As much as I enjoy visiting more urban areas, including Chicago, Duluth, Minneapolis, etc, I cannot imagine living where this type of experience is not both daily and commonplace. Would not want to trade worrying about running into our black bear sow and cubs on a walk for worrying about people...
