New Year's Eve
We had a delightful Christmas surprise: two calves. Aren't they the cutest? We were not anticipating calves until May or June of 2011. Apparently a bull dropped in for a visit without our knowledge. The little brown bull was born December 18, and we've calculated that the black heifer was born within the last 4-5 days. Generally, a cow will hide her calf for several days up to a week. However, we saw the brown calf when it was no more than 3-4 hours old, if that. Hubby was walking the dogs when he came upon the brown's calf mother and him. Fortunately, Luc was off investigating something, but Maggie was right beside hubby. They got chased by the momma --mainly Maggie was chased-- and the rest of the cows ran over to see if help was needed.
I hope all had a wonderful Christmas, and here's wishing you a blessed and prosperous New Year!
Until next time, God bless.
