A Christmas calf! I'm babysitting a friends' farm for a couple days, milking cows, feeding calves etc and this is what I found this afternoon. A newborn calf. The cow was overdue so it wasn't really a surprise, I knew it could happen but I've not had experience with this sort of thing(cows). Now I have, LOL. Needless to say, by the time I got them both in the barn, I was wore out and muddy. A heifer calf and she's beautiful. I just missed getting to see it, the calf was still wet when I found her. The cow is an older girl so thankfully she wasn't upset over me being so close, she really is a big dang cow and could have stomped me if she wanted to. Glad she didn't :)
Yes, all of 2013 and part of 2012 are missing from the blog. You can thank Mike H for that. Almost all of those posts were about our great friendship and our partnership in farming. You all know how that turned out!
