9th calf 2016

Look what Mike found when he went up for a calf-check on this rainy/cold afternoon: 
 Yep. Disco had her calf – ANOTHER GIRL!!!😱 (That makes 8 girls and one boy.) {Click here to read about her calf from last year.}

Boys have named her: Ruby. (Totally random – though they DID say she has a rosey complexion, lol.πŸ˜‰)

By the time we were all suited up, Disco had moved her into an area with some trees. When Mike left them, she had fed her calf. And we were REALLY hoping she’d have Ruby all cleaned up. BUT, she didn’t.😑 Good thing I had brought some old towels to the barn. This ones gonna need some work.😁  

 
  
  
  
  

Ruby is pretty large, and didn’t seem too interested in walking – especially in the muck & mire. That was fine by us, we weren’t exactly thrilled to be trudging through it either…πŸŒ§πŸŒ¨πŸ’¨  

Michael had to make a quick detour and guard the fourwheeler… For some reason, Coco decided she wanted to beat it up.😳

 
Michael drove Mike & Ruby down to the barn. Paul & I stuck with Disco.  

 
  
You’ll notice the few pics I have are from pretty far away. That’s because I couldn’t keep up with Michael’s driving! (I’m thinking of renaming him Mario…🏎🏁😏)

 
(I had to sprint AND ZOOM to get this one…πŸ˜‚)  
  
  
Ruby got a nice rub down, and some fresh hay to snuggle down in.❀️    

Well, it wasn’t exactly how we wanted to spend our afternoon, since the boys’ baseball game got cancelled DUE TO YUCKY WEATHER, lol, but that’s ok.😊

Almost done with 2016 calves!! One more left…πŸ™πŸΌ
