The nights have been cool, but our days have been so warm this past week.
Oh...it feels like Spring!
Our second oldest raises registered Red Angus and he has had 2 babies born in the last week.
One little heifer....meet Sally...
The boys were lucky enough to watch the birth. That doesn't happen very often.
I caught them quietly standing off at a distance.
Will even filmed the whole event :).
Fresh born and Mama licking her clean.
That is the sign of a healthy calf.
Next came a rather big calf, and because he was born near Superbowl Sunday, Tim is registering him as "Superbull Sun King."
He was actually born breech...which is not a good thing.
Sometimes, you really have to help the Mama cow if baby is breech.
But we were lucky that his Mama worked to get him positioned just right and he slid out perfectly.
I kind of panicked when Tim came in to tell me that the back feet were showing first and there was no sign of a little nose.
Usually the calf comes out like "Superman" with front feet and nose showing first.
We had a neighbor and Dad on his way home to help pull...I am so glad everything turned out fine.
Hope you are all having a great day!
