Alls well that ends well!
Well, we're part way to ending well anyway. Number two calf born last night. Two more to go.
Hope the rest go smoothly.

We have a couple of winter calves expected in this herd of cows we just purchased.
Vaccinations, cheaper than whiskey. ;-)

She done good! But I know its tough up there on newborns, hope you have the best of luck. Had a surprise myself, the other day, that looks just like that one.

Had the 3rd and 4th calves yesterday, which was the 283rd day. Put the two born yesterday in the barn last night with their mothers, but one is going to lose the tips of his ears anyway.

Had a surprise at feeding time yesterday, brought the pair in and three more soon to be mothers as well. Got them bedded and sheltered nicely and will pay close attention for a few days.
Trying to decide if calving season ended late or is starting early.
lil red silver.... :)
