6th calf 2017

Another afternoon walk by Mike’s mom tipped us off that a cow was looking ready to have her calf… Mike and I went up an hour later to check things out.๐Ÿฎ

Yep – could see a little one as we neared the field!

It was cute – running around 3 cows, trying to figure out which one was its mama!๐Ÿ˜‚

From left to right is: Sarge, Fiskars, and Oreo(Cookie)…

Meet Snowflake! {Ugh. My random-naming sons… There is absolutely NOTHING snowflake-ey about today, lol! Yet they insist…๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‚}

This is Sarge’s second calf  for us. [Click here to read about last year’s calf.] And click here to read about when Sarge was born…

I love that I caught Sarge’s tongue out, lol! She’s all ready to finish cleaning Snowflake up…๐Ÿ˜‰

They were headed in the right direction, so we decided to leave them together for now. We’ll run up after tonight’s game and make sure they are both still together and ok. Most likely, we’ll bring them down in the morning.โšพ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Check back later tomorrow to see what happens!๐ŸŽฌ


Added these from this morning: 3-28-17

What a soggy morning it was! Made it a muddy mess, but all went well getting Sarge and Snowflake down to the barn.โ˜”๏ธ

Here we are heading up… 

[I guess today is Junior’s blog debut! He showed up a couple months ago, and he got his name because he looks so much like Blake!๐Ÿ˜ป This year Blake turns 11, which is highly unusual for a barn cat – especially considering the busy road we live on. We are grateful he made it through another Ohio winter! Junior is fun because he’s got a lot of kitten in him. He’s playful and very energetic. Can’t say that Blake is super fond of Junior yet, lol… But we do our best to shower them each with lots of love and attention.๐Ÿ˜บ]

Junior on the left & Blake on the right…โคโค

Anyways… Junior followed us almost all the way to Mordor…

He stopped here, at the roundbales…

Here we are catching up with Snowflake…

Off we headed out of Mordor…

Had to weed out their anxious entourage, but it worked out fine. (Everybody wants out of Mordor, but the grass hasn’t grown enough yet… Lord willing: it will be SOON!)๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Here is where we met back up with Junior. Looks like he just wanted to check out our baby-routine…๐Ÿ˜น

Aaaand then he wanted to JOIN our routine, lol!๐Ÿ˜บ

Here Sarge and Snowflake were serenaded by the other newly-freshened mamas…๐ŸŽถ

And here is Blake making sure he isn’t overshadowed by Junior…๐Ÿ˜‰

After milking, Mike and Paul moved Remington and Colt over to our place while Michael cleaned the milkline. These two calves were VERY ornery. Paul had Colt, who really made Paul work. First he only wanted to go backwards. Then he changed direction and only wanted to run. His huge size meant he got to do whatever he wanted, lol! (I’m so glad it was Paul working with him and not me – I could barely keep up to take a couple pictures!๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ฌ)

New tally: 4 girls, 2 boys and 5 more to come (we think!) Half way done!!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
