Maxine has twins!
Maxine and calves
Yep. She’s never had twins before, but she had twins earlier this evening. Here is Bull #1.
And this is Bull #2.
They are both doing well, but they need some help nursing her huge udder.
At least once they get it figured out (and my brother-in-law milks out a gallon of colostrum to freeze), she’ll have plenty to feed them.
Way to go, Maxine! In other news, I just found out that Norma Jean calved about three weeks ago. She had either a bull or a heifer. At least I do know that everyone is doing well.

Just before Sallie had her kids, I visited my cow girls, Maxine and Norma Jean. Although, they are no longer mine.

I sold Norma Jean to my ex-brother-in-law. Maxine is a bit different. He gets her, but he can’t sell her. That way, if she can ever retire without busting through a fence looking for a bull, she can come home.
They are both bred and should have calves next month.
Of course, I visited right before they were cleaning out the barn and putting down new bedding, so it looks dirty, but it’s hard to keep clean in the spring. The cows are all looking forward to going out on pasture for the summer.

Well, every time I go up the road, I have to look in the neighbor’s pasture and wonder where, oh where, my bovine are.
I miss seeing Maxine and Norma Jean and George. I wonder which ones might be them.
I’m guessing they don’t give a passing thought to me.
Hey! That red one looks like it might be Maxine…
You see, they got what they wanted.
It will probably be late fall before they come home.
