Wake up call

Today my brother-in-law, Brad, who is living with us right now, knocked on our door at 5:30am. He said, "The calf, Lucas, is in the front pasture with the other cows and his mom is not with him." Gordon and I got up to take a look and discovered not Lucas, but another baby calf. Still wet from birth and trying to stand on it's wobbly legs. Brad had just left for work so we called him to let him know that it was in fact a new calf.

Everyone, I would like to introduce Diego, the 2nd bull calf born in the last two days. He looks just like his cousin, Lucas, but he is just slightly bigger.
What a joy these new babies bring to our farm. Now we just need Buttercup to deliver and we will have three new lives on our farm.

Well I am glad mama and baby got back together.
Years ago we raised hens and sold eggs. I liked doing that. MB
