Wow, a week already, and no blog post!!! oops! Busy busy I guess.
The anniversary party went very well, we had a great turnout and I think all enjoyed it . My niece Deana, did a slide show of photos through the years and that was a special hit. If I can figure it out I will share it sometime soon.
Otherwise it has been business as usual , calving is going along well for the most part, the snow,is painfully slow melting away but it does seem to be finally going .
I posted the above shot on facebook the other day and it appeared to a friend that Winston was laying on a table . But really ...
We are keeping lots of straw out so the "kids " have dry bedding
We have one little hiccup, a calf born on Saturday in yet another spring snow squall. He was one cold wet little dude, the neighbor came to help be bring him in to dry shelter and I had to tube feed him twice before he seemed to be OK. But after a day or so ,even though he seems to be nursing ,he looked a little sad and droopy, so I took out a bottle hoping he would take it, take it? he leaped up and darn near chased me around the pen for it , got him on mom again but still seemed like he was not getting enough , so we brought them both in. She does have some milk but not really enough so we are supplementing him for the time being .Which is where the helping hands come in.
We had a special guest here yesterday , in the form of Emily,my newest honorary niece(as I puff out my chest in pride at all the wonderful children I am blessed to have in my world) and her mom Amber to help feed the calf. I just love the smiles!Mane Event But I hope to post at least a couple times before that .
That's whats up in my world these days , hope everyone has had a good week.
And as always , stay safe my friends.
