arethinn: Freakazoid! (humor silly (freakazoid))
(discussing the fact that we often don't use up a container of milk before it goes bad)

Arethinn: but if we go all the way down to pints, the lack of being ultra pasteurized might not be a problem
Celebron: ahhh, true
Arethinn: quart seems to be a threshold
Arethinn: maybe we should just get a cow
Celebron: sure
Arethinn: that's obviously cheaper and easier
Celebron: we need a dwarf cow
Arethinn: you'd have to lie on the ground to milk it!
Arethinn: tho, i don't think it's like chickens and eggs, where they lay no matter what... cows don't lactate unless they get pregnant, right?
Arethinn: so we'd need a dwarf stud
Arethinn: actually, i think they artificially inseminate dairy cows
Arethinn: plus, i don't think Tyrion is available
Celebron: ...
Arethinn: ...what was in that coffee i just drank

LOL, dwarf cows are known as 'goats'. They're not cheaper or easier than anything.*

Maybe when you buy a quart of milk, you could pour half into a pitcher for immediate use and put the other half in the freezer for later?

[This is a joke; I know there's real dwarf cows. They produce more than two gallons of milk a day though, so that wouldn't solve your problem.]

LOL, my first husband and I had no car, and the grocery store was a mile away, so we used to joke about getting a mule, and stabling it on the back porch of our tiny city apartment.

Goats don't trim lawns - they're browsers, not grazers; what they do in a yard is devour everything but the lawn, starting with the roses. If you want a self-propelled perpetual lawnmower, what you need is a horse. Or a mule, right? XD

In all honesty, there's no method of lawn care, including cutting the grass by hand with nail scissors, that wouldn't end up to be cheaper and easier than having animals do it, especially if you also have to milk them twice a day and make cheese.
