Momma went from passive momma cow to fire breathing dragon in an instant , when I tried to steer baby around the gate back to her, yes I was trying to help, but she seemed to think I was the elusive 2 legged coyote!
Fear is a great motivator,it wasn't pretty , but I got out of the way and that is what counts in the end .
Did get mom and baby joined up again and all is well .
Up to 5 calves now , and other than me practicing some vaulting , and some slick cow horse moves(My Uncle Bud once told me I would make a helluva cow horse, well I hope he is watching over me and enjoying the show!) when moving them from pen to pen it is going well enough so far .
we are up to 5 now.Hoping they might take a tiny break as we have forecast for bad weather Wed/Thurs . But if you know cows,sigh , nothing works better to bring on calving than a change in the weather!
We were almost snow and mud free before the last blast.
Oh well Stay safe everyone !
