Farewell Harry

Pat Warren grooms Harry this week on her last day with the Highland steer, one of the first she started her small herd with about 10 years ago in a pasture across from her Tunbridge home. Warren recently made the difficult decision to have Harry slaughtered after nursing him through the fall. His declining health made it more likely that Harry would suffer through the winter. The herd, however will maintain its numbers as Harriet, left, gave birth to a calf this past Monday.(Valley News - James M. Patterson)
