New Babies

We are now into our 3rd week of calving and other than being a bit sleep deprived things have gone really well. We are about 55% done with several that could pop any day.  Calving is our favorite time of the year.  The decisions that you made not only last spring but for many years previous to that all come together at once.  There is nothing more special that to see a new momma cow that loves her baby, and then a few hours later see that new calf explore the world.

 We have lots of snow this year and have had some sunny days recently.  The calves are enjoying laying out in the sunshine and running through the snow.  We already each have our favorites and will continue to see how they develop over the next few months.

We have had a few of our city friends visit in the last few weeks hoping that they will see a calf being born.  It's fun to see their expressions.  We hope that if you are currently in calving season that it is going well and you are enjoying your new arrivals as much as we are.
