Calf #2

We survived the weekend. My house is NOT as clean as I would like, I haven't touched my flowerbeds but.....

last night we had a second calf on the ground - ANOTHER heifer.

We also finished up moving steers, heifers and everything else around, and Jessie's two steers are now ensconed where the horses used to be (and the horses are outside until September).

The horses do have a shed to get out of the weather, and here in a couple weeks they would quit coming in anyhow, so we just speeded the process up.

2 more calves to go at our house, 1 more at my brother-in-laws house, and we are DONE!

I love seeing the pictures of the calves! Thanks for letting me live vicariously through your farming life. One of these days I hope to be doing the same...

Darn, I've missed a few things going on! CUTE-CUTE sewing projects. Your lucky swap partner!!
And the baby calves are great. You did have a busy weekend. My house didn't get as clean as I'd have liked either.
Have a good day.

Wow, your herd is really growing. I love little calves, we see them all around us: country living but not farming or raising anything.
