Got up to Mordor this morning and saw our heifer RedRobin looking like this:
So Mike and I split up and began searching. I looked inside the fence, and Mike looked outside the fence.🕵🏻 (We try to keep the cows away from this area due to all the briars; but for some reason, they love to hang out right at the edge…😬)
Wasn’t but a couple minutes and Mike spotted the calf. Outside the fence. Encased in briars.🙄
Decided to leave it be until we had the halter and the boys to help bring them down. So Mike headed back to the barn, and I waited up in the field for them all to come back. Here is RedRobin staring at where her calf was laying from her side of the fence.
Can kinda see Michael’s head as he waited by his post…🔎
Meet our 5th bull: Smith. We are so thankful our second first-timer this year had her calf unassisted and healthy! (First one was Pinetar with her twins.) One more heifer to calve yet this season…🙏🏼
Right about here RedRobin pretty much said goodbye to Smith and started down to the barnyard at a brisk pace…😑
Updated tally: 5 boys and 4 girls. (2 more, we think!)👏🏼
