Likely it has something to do with the fact we had a couple bulls get in with our herd last summer for a few days, which you might think would speed things up, but they have to spend a day or so fighting and jockeying for position in the herd , and can be so busy doing that , they forget the "task at hand " so to speak.Or they took a break for some odd reason. No lameness issues or hoof rot last summer with the bulls so , who knows ,maybe like the title says its just one of those things. Anyhow I wish they would step it up a bit , I want to get the cows out on pasture soon and start watching the mares . Looks like Peps is not bred, and Jazz? hard to say for sure. Jewels on the other hand looks large and hugely uncomfortable so I guess we will have one or 2 foals to watch for this year.That's farming though , gotta go with the flow and things can change pretty quick from what you planned to what you get. For no real reason other than "Snakes don't have armpits" yes ,in point of fact there is a little more science to it than I am letting on , and ways to assure some of the variables are out of the mix, but the mares were confirmed , and sometimes they lose a foal early on. And the cows were checked as well. Any way you look , it is what it is, and we will be done calving, right after the last calf is born.
Just a quickie video of the gang so far
