Well, I knew EllieMae was close to calving, and interestingly enough, she had her calf the day after Annabelle!?! We own two cows, and they calve that close together...really, what ARE the odds??
This time, we're blessed with a healthy lil' bull calf. He was all dried off from birthing, but EllieMae hadn't cleaned out yet at 7 AM when My Man found them. And then it started snowing...I didn't get down there until 11 or so to take some photos and we had a good half inch. Thank goodness it's pretty warm (34 degrees).
|What's with this white stuff?|
Then I went down to check on everyone this afternoon and look what I find...
|The lil' bull calf must think he's part goat!|
He climbed...and she followed him.
|"I'm tired after that climb...I'll just lay here and rest up.|
Glad you could keep up with me mom!"
Well, he's gonna be a tough one!!
And the lil' heifer?...
|Momma's got her tucked underneath a sagebrush,|
and she's pretending I haven't spotted her.
|Everything about calves are cute...right down to their cute lil' hooves!|
So, all is well in the "Cow Girls'" world...the beautiful cycle of life begins again~
