It was the coldest day in a week or so here high of 22 and will get down to zero tonight..and than darn wind..Thank goodness babies pop out and are practically running around within a few minutes (touch wood). I had two born at the exact same time today..I don't know which numbers to give them as I do it in order of how they are born.. :lol2:

So far all my purebreds except Mandy have had heifer calves.. :banana: Now if all my commercial cows would have bull calves I would be in cow heaven..I know wishfull thinking.. :roll:

We're in the 50's, and snow is melting everywhere. The ice is doubly hazardous, with all that water running across. I was takin' little baby steps while I fed this morning.
Now we can get back to a normal winter here--mud.

I love it when the snow slides off the steel roofs at the ranch. Now I got these 6 ft piles along the buildings :roll: Maybe the nicest day yet today. :nod: .

Rained all day here today. It was 38 and so far none of it has froze on the roads ~ but they are anticipating that, I saw the trucks spreading sand and salt earlier. Snow is melting like crazy.
This Rocks!! :nod:

Early Spring in Minnesota is a combination of words seldom used. Snow is gone here, but we'll get covered up again. You won't see real Spring until...I'll shut up. Didn't mean to rain on your parade. :oops:
