Already Easier

6 Aug

I’ve been doing my blog posts a day ahead of time.  For some reason that’s just how it works out.  I did my post for Saturday on Friday evening.  That morning routine is really how my Saturday morning went.  After lunch, I went to check Purple 11 again.  It wasn’t too hard finding the herd.

After counting several times, I still came up one cow short.

I went looking for Purple 11.  Anyhow, I assumed she was off by herself having a calf.  I had to walk by the cows, and I think they were watching me as closely as I was watching them.

Eventually, I spotted her.

She has a calf that is up and nursing.

I’m not going to get any closer than this, and she actually started leading her baby away from me.  At least I don’t have to check her first thing every morning now.  Honestly, I think it was a couple of days old and she’s just been hiding it from me.  Snooty bovine.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.

    What’s the baby moo’s name? or I guess you will wait until you see if male or female.

      This calf has a numbered tag–no name. All these calves will be finished to go into the food chain. It is a bull, but he’s already been banded.

    At least you don’t have to worry any more. It looks like a cutie but I would not want to mess with that much concerned mama.

      Nephew came out to band, tag, weigh and vaccinate him this morning. His wife and I got to keep three of the cows back. They are all very protective of the herd.

    Well as you say – that’s one less thing to do! Is the calf black? He looks dark.

      Yep. He is black. Daddy is a black angus.
