1st calf 2019

Mike found Uno with her new addition this morning…

Since we’d already made arrangements to bring home a couple more loads of hay this morning, we decided to stick to that plan and bring Uno down with her calf after that.

Was fun waiting and wondering if it was a boy or a girl! We’ve never had a calf with so much white before. No doubt that’s because of our new bull – Mr. Sandman:

We headed up later in the morning, and saw extra activity around one of the round-bale feeders…😂

Got a little closer, and saw the reason. This is a first for us – a calf in a “play pen”, lol!

Welcome, Angel!❤️ She is Uno’s 4th calf for us. [Click here to read about Uno’s calf last year.] [Click here to read the post when Uno was born.]

Mike got the halter on Angel and lifted her through the feeder. She was a champ and made the mucky trek down to the barn with her mama.👏🏼

Her color-tipped ears are just darling…😍

She ate like a champ!❤️

Whiney was pretty happy, too…😻

Hard to believe this is our 13th season of calving! I just went and counted how many calves we’ve had over that period and am completely amazed. Angel is the 145th calf born here!😱

To the best of our knowledge, we’re expecting 8 more calves this season.🙏🏼🐮

Lord, we are so grateful for how You’ve sustained us each and every year. Thank You for allowing us to care for these animals, and for providing nourishment from them for our family and so many others. Prepare us to handle whatever comes of this season, and grow us as You see fit through both the ups and the downs. It is a joy to see Your hand all around us! Amen❤️✝️
