A Little Red Reefer!

All thanks to YOU.

She is perfect.

And she needs a name……….

Thank you, also, to Taylor, Sharon, Brian, Heligal Anne, Flying Coyote, Kate, Jane, Dennis, Jan, Rue, Jessica, Lindsey, Meghan, Mary, Ellen, Susan, Abi, Kelley, Sophie, Kathleen, Broken Wagon Farm, Rocko & Daisy, Bree, Pat, Julie, Marya, Maureen, Joyce, Pam, Nicole, Karie, Torre, Katie, Corinne, Sheri, Laima, Lissa, Linda, CeeBee, Sally, Liza, Susan, Leslie, Sara, Melissa, Sandy, Maggie, Bud, Joy, Jay, The Fourteen Anonymoi, Blithe, Moonyean, Keli, Karl, Marian, FOSS, John, Elizabeth, Theresa, Kevin, Rowan, and Jacquelyn for donating to my fundraiser to Help Fight Hunger.

We’re a third of the way to my goal (which I am matching to $10K)! I’m going to let it run till the beginning of November, then take a truckload of beef to The Food Bank of the Rockies in time for the holidays. You can join us and donate HERE – just $5 makes an impact.

Quickie Farmily news ~ Tinkerbell might be pregnant! Can you believe it? She looks so good, so strong and healthy, you’d never guess her tragic calfhood by looking at her. You’d never know Sid was an orphan, either. He is downright fat and he and Roxy are joined at the hip. I want to make them a draft team. I’ve been wanting to train an ox for years – since Frisco was born – and I always run out of time, so we’ll see if they ever pull a cart together…. but I do have them both halter trained. They are the cutest little pair. When Frisco died, I didn’t know if I’d ever fall in love with another calf like I did with him, and with Roxy and Sid, I have, times two.

    Your cute reefer calls to me “Rosie” and I don’t know why, it just does. I can hardly wait to see you and your red reefer next week!

    My first 3 thoughts:
    That is a beautiful truck.
    I am in love with a truck.
    I am green with envy. (Or red in this case)

    So happy for you Shreve; with the truck, the Kickstarter, your wonderful food donation program and all the babies whose lives have been graced by you!

    Ruby came to mind first…
    BUT, ‘Rhody’ (red rhododendron) has two meanings, right?

    She’s beautiful! I do hope that having your own adorable little red reefer means that in future years, you’ll be able to deliver to my neck of the woods, too. My husband and I would dearly love to try your wonderful beef!

    Your red reefer is so frickin’ cool! I love it! Thanks for doing all you do, Shreve. From sharing your life, to giving us insight to life with Charlie, for giving your cattle a good life, to living true to you. All of it helps to make the world a better place and inspires many to be true to themselves (ourselves!) too.

    As usual, your photographs are stunning. It looks like your truck modeled for you.

    Rhodochrosite, shortened to Rhodie.

    Looking forward to seeing the truck – thinking about The Little Engine that Could.

    Always enjoy hearing about the farmily and their antics. Happy to hear that Roxy and Sid have dug themselves so deeply into your heart. Love rules.

    You’ve been calling it Little Red Reefer for so long, that is how I think of it.

    In my watercolors, that color is Quin Red.

    Also Cad Red and Permanent Red Deep, but those aren’t as lyrical.

    I still like Little Red Reefer. Sorta like the Little Red Hen, only with vehicles.

    I also like the name Ruby for this beautiful truck. And here’s a tune to go with her.

    July 29th, 2016 @ 9:34 am

    The name of your company is Star Brand Beef ~ I would name the truck (if it were mine) B.B. Star ~
    Stay cool over there ~

    Upon reflection, It probably won’t matter what you name her, her nickname will end up being Red.

    Or Green. As in reference to your holistic or ‘green’ approach to life.

    Little Red Riding Reefer.

    After the song Little Red Riding Hood by Sam the Sham & the Pharoahs, because that symbolises your fight against the big bad feedlotters (which is a complete insult to wolves everywhere and I apologise – it’s metaphorical, alright?!)

    And because I’m a little insane, I relyric’d it a little…

    Who’s that I see driven’ down these roads?
    Why, it’s Little Red Riding Reefer.
    Hey there Little Red Riding Reefer,
    You sure are looking good.
    You’re everything a big bad feedlotter could want.
    Listen to me.
    Little Red Riding Reefer
    I don’t think little big girls should
    Go working in the spooky old cattle trade alone.
