Some farmers used hobbles. Others designed medieval anti-kicking devices. We once had a cow who treated every milking as an audition for the Rockettes. We tried everything I mentioned above plus a few other tricks. Nothing worked. Night after night she peeled the milker off and stomped it to the straw, occasionally nailing one of us in the thigh, or flicking our ears with her dewclaws. Dad must have been talking about her at the feed mill, because some farmer lent him a homemade antikicking tool, which was basically a giant horseshoe-shaped clamp that fit around what you might imagine as the cow’s waist.

Even with the fire going, the house feels chilly to me. I’ve been a little brittle lately. I think it’s the move, the sick kid, the baby pending. For years I slid through life with no more on the line than my own hide. Now I have these other lives, and I’m feeling a little onerous, which is three syllables for whiny. I can’t imagine how it was for my parents with everything on their plates.
Still, as I once heard someone put it, the secret to successful self-employment is to wake up scared every morning, and I usually do. In public, I am prone to saying freelance writing is a slightly less reliable way of making a living than farming. But when I think of all the hungry mouths circling the dinner table, and Dad out there in the barn trying to make a living with the milk of eighteen cows, I scale down the drama. Dad supplemented the milk check with some on-call work for a factory in Bloomer over the years, and Mom earned money from the county for providing foster care, but even with that in the equation, the family still qualified for government cheese.
