Calf Number ?!?!?!?!? - 7 maybe???

Tonight, as I am cooking dinner (steaks, baked potatoes and last years green beans out of the freezer - totally local meal too), Tyler comes in - Nala's in trouble - there is something hanging out of her butt. This is the cow I've been watching all day. By the time I put on my shoes and walk the 50 feet to the cow pen - this was on the ground:



What a wonderful sight to see - and I couldn't get any closer to see what it was (boy or girl) - she 'bout came over the gate at me trying to keep me away from her baby. I'll make Todd go out when he gets home and see if he can tell what it is.



All day she has been trying to get away from everyone to have this calf - when they would come up, she would go to the pasture (Todd turned them out early). When they would go out, she would come up. Poor girl.


Edited at 10:15 p.m. - Todd just got home from work, and it is a girl so .. . .

Boys - 5 Girls - 2
