  • Best friends

    "Judi Mae is almost 6 months old and she just loves Gilligan," says the owner of this adorable pair. "She will nudge him and he will take a few steps and stop and look back at her and she will come and do it all over again. Judi Mae is a future milk cow. Her mother, Sissy, is a Jersey crossed with a Guernsey, and her Daddy is a Jersey. She has already begun her practice for her future job and is doing well."
