It’s that time of year again! Our first calf arrived this morning. Fiskars (a.k.a. Bubby) had her first GIRL! Welcome: Patty.🍀 <Click here to read about her calf last year.> This is her 4th calf for us. <Click here to read about when Fiskars was born.>
This year all the mamas are in the field: Grey Heaven, rather than Mordor as they have been the last 10 years. We weren’t sure how the new route would go, but these two had no problems with it.👏🏼
Here are some pics as we walked them out of Grey Heaven and down toward the milking barn.
Here they are approaching the crossroads. They used to come from the right and then walk down the hill to the barn. This year, they’ll all turn left to get to the barn.👍🏼
And here we are on our way down the hill.
Finally got a good shot of Patty from the front. She’s a cutie!😍
We are expecting a total of 7 calves this season. Sure feels good to have the first one here, and all is well!👍🏼
[Of course, today is the day my phone decides to die and we spend several hours at the Verizon store upgrading to a new phone. And then the new phone won’t accept our iTunes backup because it’s too old, lol. (All consequences to waiting too long to keep up with current technology…🙄😬) So grateful we have techie friends who can walk us through these changes!😇] So assuming I can figure out this new phone quickly and we can eventually get all our records back on it, calving posts should still get up relatively quickly. Not exactly how I wanted to start this season out, lol, but I have no doubt the Lord is already using this experience to grow me in MANY ways…especially patience!🙏🏼❤️
