The Miracle, photos fixed!

Post by randiliana » Wed Apr 06, 2011 4:03 pm

Since I can't edit my original post, here they are again.

Here's the miracle of birth for those of you interested. From waterbag to calf took approx 15 minutes. It is her second calf.

Hooves down, that's a good sign, she just had the waterbag

:clap:

Looks like her neighbor there isn't too far out either. We've had four in two days. Never get over being excited just a little.

Good job. Based on barn prices this week I'm pretty sure you could get about $450 for that baldie today. :nod:

JK, I think the neighbour is going to be a couple weeks yet. She's not showing much yet. But we're down to 12 head to calve so I'm pretty happy about that!

Jo, he only weighed 93 lbs, I don't know about $450. Give him a couple weeks though.....
