Mom and I are in cow heaven! Every day Dad, Mom, and I head out and count babies. Right now…the count this morning was forty five calves on the ground.
Some just born overnight, a couple being born, as we drove by, and several are days and even a week or so old.
Now I admit, the other thing I like about CALF season is SNACKS! Mom gets rather irritated with me about SNACKS, in calf season, but (golly-geez!), I can’t help myself they are SO good!
I have to head-out by myself, as Mom gets grossed out and won’t let me snack. (I must admit Fuzzy never liked these snacks. I don’t know why he didn’t, he would just turn his head and walk on by.)
The first day of figuring out the farm is now loaded with Milk Duds (calf poopy) and Beef Jerky (after birth) I ate so much I had a belly ache. Mom told me she didn’t feel one bit sorry for me. Well, so what, I felt sorry for me.
BUT NOT ENOUGH TO STOP!!!
