A busy morning on Bubbaloo Farm

As is normal in life, whenever you think you are going to have a quiet day to get caught up after a holiday and take the kids to the zoo, something throws you a curve ball.  A quick trip around the farm to feed all the animals turned into an exciting adventure and another item I can cross off my bucket list.

It is amazing how nature has it all figured out if we just sit back and watch.  This is our first experience with pregnant cows, and with so much worry about our own inexperience, mamma cow handled it like a pro.

I personally think she resembles Anna more than me but you all can be the judge hehehe.  Our first heifer calf.  Four legs, two ears, a nose and a mouth, I think she is perfect!!

Within 20 minutes she was up and searching for a swollen udder.  

We were expecting spring calves when we got the cows but I guess we were a bit misinformed.  With three more cows ready to pop it should be interesting to see how the next couple of weeks of cold weather go!!  

I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday and I wish you all the very best for the new year!!!
