Such a great way to celebrate the first day of spring – with new life! Welcome first calf of 2017!👏🏼 Can’t believe this is our 10th season of calving!😱
Mike found Tangerine with her daughter when we went up to do a calf-check this morning. [click here to read about her calf last year]
The 4 of us waited to go up so Tangerine could clean her up a bit and get her fed. Apparently she did that and then walked Rose over to the unrolled round bale so SHE could eat…
(This pic cracks me up… Guess she was hungry!😋)
Once Mike & Michael joined us back up in Mordor, we worked together to bring Tangerine down. She was incredibly stubborn and frustrating… Had us running in mud and out of breath (at least Mike & I were, lol.)😬
Here she is taking a water break.
Thank You, Lord, for holding off our first calf until a little warmer weather arrived. Prepare our bodies and our equipment to handle navigating through this slippery mud as we move from winter to spring. Teach us what You want us to learn from this year’s calving season. May we honor You with each step we take. Amen🙏🏼
