Same exact thing we've got happening here. We put the two together near the house so we can peek out the window and look at them. Nice outside so we pretty much forget about them.

Be careful what you wish for - you just might get it! It's supposed to start raining her tomorrow, and continue for 3 or 4 days. You're far enough north of us, that you're likely to get snow - that should get her motivated! If it does, I sure hope it works out.

I heard that I had a heifer that has been bagged up it seems like for ages. She finally dropped a healthy heifer calf this morning.
Oh no....twisted..you ain't seen nothin...I've got a heifer that has been bagged up and her back end looking LOOSE AS A GOOSE forever!!! I mean...I really have to take a picture of this butt...I didn't know they could get THAT loose...(I've seen loose but this is LOOSE!!!!!!) We keep saying she HAS to calve soon!!! (She still has movement so we're not worried about the calf)...

In your photo bucket if you click on the image you want, click on resize which should be one of your options above your image and then click probably medium is what I normally use for forums.
