Little surprises

Postby Tchernobog » Mon Feb 08, 2016 08:17 am

We were not expecting any new additions to the herd until at least the end of the month, but sometimes life gives you little surprises:

Now only three more expectant mothers to go...

"Beanie baby" has been RFID ear tagged and sexed. It is a boy, by the way.

As for the Texan claiming lots of snow, it was 9 C° (48.2 F°) today. Not much snow left, and it has been warm for weeks.

That's more snow then we've seen here in almost a decade. 48° is too cold.

@Tcherno:

It's not an egg of course, but I have always been a supporter of cows, just so you know. :D

Second bull calf arrived last Wednesday night. Been too busy to post:

You have seen nothing yet. Wait to you see an adolescent calf going through its first full winter:

Get your shag on.

Yeah really. Buffalo is freaking good too.

Oh well. They weren't created to look cute.

Technically these guys are more likely to become breeding animals rather than beef, since I have been selling them to other ranchers directly ever since they closed the livestock auction in Drayton Valley.

I suppose they may end their journey as baloney though. After a glorious time being a stud. 8)

Been a little while, but we got another bull calf today:

Don't think I have ever delivered a calf at 30 C° (86 F°) before. Now just one more to go.
