We have a new girl on the farm. Last week #54 had a pretty little girl calf.
This was a big deal because this was #54’s first calf. Miguel pointed out she was in labor that morning and I walked over to check on her.
This is what I found. She was completely non-plussed. She was apart from everyone else and just walking around like nothing was going on. The rest of the herd was curious as to what I was doing so they followed me which then crowded her. She looked ok so I walked back and told Miguel she had a few hours to go. You know, with my massive experience as a mid-wife, I could totally tell.
So about 15 minutes after I got back Miguel texts me that the calf had been born and was already nursing. Looks like I need another career. The mid-wife thing isn’t going to work out.
So when you come for a tour, ask about the new little girl we have hanging around. She is a cutie.
