In anticipation of calf #4, we brought the three oldest calves over from the white barn on Thursday. Heidi went first, then Bucky, and lastly Roni. It is a delight to see them running around over here from our back windows.😍
It was nice having the stalls in the white barn already emptied this morning. What a gift it is when you can actually be ready and prepared for something!✝️🙂
After feeding the calves this morning, Mike & I headed up to Mordor to do a babycheck.
Got to the gate and saw a calf up by the water trough.❤️
Couldn’t tell yet who the calf’s mama was…🧐
Upon closer inspection, it was revealed that LilRed was the mama, and Nat was just trying to steal it like she did with Sarge’s…🙄
We didn’t want to lose the opportunity to halter the calf and/or they all walk to the back side of the field before we could get the fences ready for the walk to the barn…
It’s a girl! She is LilRed’s 4th calf for us. [Click here to read about her calf from last year.] [Click here to read about when LilRed was born.] We decided to name her April because…well…it’s April, lol.😂
Mike sent me down on the four wheeler to get all the gates and fences ready while he stayed up top with the herd.
Thankfully, I got things lined up without issue since on my way back up I met Mike already walking down with LilRed and April!😲
So I turned around, headed back down and got a couple pics of them coming towards the barnyard…👍🏼
Sarge and Uno were excited to gain another roomie…😆
A beautiful morning for a parade of our own here on Palm Sunday.✝️❤️
New tally is three girls and one boy. Lord willing, we are expecting four more calves this year.🙏🏼
