Woke up this morning at ' O dark thirty' to what sounded like a cow dieing! We went running to the pasture to see if all was alright - and thankfully, all was well. Our last cow - her 2nd calf, first one had to be assisted - was finishing up the delivery.

Although i was happy at the miracle of birth - my thoughts start running to the logic parts - is the calf ok, momma ok, bull or heifer - and dang it, there is white on the underside - gonna cost me at the sale barn!!! ;-)

btw - this is one of my long horn mommas bred to an Angus.

My wife took a completely different view - again, she was amazed at the miracle of birth, then she start yapping at the cow to " ... be careful with those horns..." - you should have seen the look my wife got from that cow - priceless!!!

Another great day in Northern Calif!!!!

Thanks all
