Found our 4th calf when we went up to check on the herd this morning. Meet Ginger! Her mama is Sarge, and she’s the same shade of red as her with a splattering of white in several spots.
This is the fourth calf that Sarge has had for us. Lord willing, Sarge’s first calf, Natasha from 2016, will be having a calf this season, too.🙏🏼

When Mike arrived with the halter, Ginger was fine until the last second. That’s when she bolted toward ME – the one who’s terrified of animals!🙄😂 But the Lord had me covered with the prayers leading up to today. His strength enabled me to tackle Ginger and hold her until Mike got to me.✝️💪🏼 Otherwise, we’d probably STILL be running around trying to catch her, lol!☺️
Sarge had only one thing on her mind – to get down to the barn. She didn’t seem to care much about waiting for Ginger to keep up. But to Ginger’s credit, she made an excellent effort to stay close! Mike had quite a brisk walk/run most of the way down to the barn. Our bodies felt the workout this morning!👵🏼👴🏼
Tally now is 3 girls and 1 boy. Lord willing, we should have 4 more arriving within the next few weeks.🙏🏼
How I delight in reading your daily life when it’s calfing season! I’m glad that you and Mike can live so “close to God” this way…. and “off the land “. To me that’s a perfect way to respect and use well , what the Lord has provided. Praise God….. and Bless You!!
Thank you for your kind words! I am grateful we have this opportunity, and that we can do it together…❤️✝️☺️
