Momma was looking pretty uncomfortable and I moved her to the baby ward in the barn. While she got down to business right away, she was taking longer than I liked. I was getting a little worried that this Grandma cow was taking too much time...so several hours into the morning I did the panic call and had the vet come out and check her. She was just a little exhausted and not pushing enough. It took a little extra tugging and some chains to get this boy into the world, but it was COLD...who can blame him. Just a very nice Bull calf and no complications...just too much hesitation on Momma's part this time.
Check out the steam coming from the Momma and this just born baby. Wind chill is still at -20 , but they are inside and temperature is suppose to hit into the 20's today.
I will see how dry he is later this afternoon when I get home from work. He may just be sleeping over in the house in front of the pellet stove tonite.
I had another long tunnel to dig us out this morning..with 4-5 ft drifts covering my entire road leading to the highway. I am about to Holler ..."UNCLE"!!!
How many days till Spring!!?????
