 h1. Dear readers,

 If you read just one longer post today, I hope you'll make it Laura Grace Weldon's [/articles/features/acowslife?utmsource=NL20100120&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=ACowsLife&utmcampaign=ReturnoftheCow2 "piece about her happy cow, Isabelle,"] and Isabelle's unusual life. Although, honestly, if you read that, then you'll probably want to click on the first link in that post and read Laura's story about how Isabelle came to live with their family in the first place.

 When I first read about Isabelle, it made me want to get a cow. 

 As things stand on our 50-by-100-foot lot,  that is  not going to happen. But I do feel ever more resolve to seek out the products of farmers and ranchers whose practices demonstrate that they honor the cow-ness of their cattle — for example, by grazing them on grass as cows were evolved to do.
