2nd & 3rd calves 2017

TWIN GIRLS!!๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Meet Maple and Syrup. Mike was delighted to see that one of our two bred heifers (Pinetar) not only had one cleaned-up, full-tummied calf this morning, but TWO!๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Pinetar took really good care of her new babies…๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

This is our first set of successful twins here, so we are pretty excited!๐Ÿค—

Back in 2010 we had a cow named Amy who had one live calf and one deceased calf. (It was before blogging days, so I don’t have a link to share.) But click here to read about Peekaboo – half of another set of twins we had back in 2012.

Mike and Paul were able to get halters on Maple and Syrup pretty easily.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ




Here is Maple:


And here is Syrup:




Maple was not as cooperative with walking as Syrup was… The boys took turns carrying her all around Mordor. (At least these girls were smaller than Rose was yesterday, lol!๐Ÿ˜‚)

Paul carried her first…




Then Pinetar led us through downed trees/scratching posts…๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ฌ


Next it was Michael’s turn to carry Maple…


And finally, we all made it through the gate and into the runway to the barn.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ


Syrup walked the whole way down with her mama, and I drove Michael and Maple down in the chariot…๐Ÿ˜‰








Whew. What a morning! Thank You, Lord!โค

Tally now 3 girls, 0 boys, and 8 more to go…WE THINK!๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
