5th calf 2020

Mike found our 5th calf with its mama this afternoon after coffee break.β˜•οΈ So back up to Mordor, we headed…

Finally – Nat had her calf!πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ With as bossy as she was when trying to steal Sarge and LilRed’s calves, we expected this to be a pretty easy time bringing a well-bonded duo down to the barn…πŸ™„…well…😬…not-so-much.😳 Not sure what her problem was, lol. Perhaps she was disappointed it was a boy??πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

We named him Sam. (Another Avenger name, to go with Bucky.πŸ˜‰)

This is Nat’s second calf for us. [Click here to read about Nat’s calf from last year.] [Click here to read about when Nat was born.]

As we entered the field, Sam ran from us but got stopped by the electric fence. (Praise the Lord – otherwise we might still be out chasing it, lol!πŸ™ƒ) We were able to get the halter on him as Nat tried to leave the area.🀨

Mike stayed with Sam and I scrambled to get in front of Nat to steer her back toward the gate.πŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈ

It eventually worked, and she and Sam made the trek down to the barn aok. They didn’t really walk as a “team,” but at least the mission was accomplished and Mike never needed to carry Sam. He’s pretty good sized, so Mike’s body really didn’t want to lift him onto the four wheeler.πŸ˜‰

Now our tally is three girls and two boys.πŸ‘πŸΌ Lord willing, three more to go!πŸ™πŸΌ
