Yes, the weather has been grumpy for the past few days. They are predicting we are supposed to get freezing, and well below freezing temps on Monday. Great. Happy Spring! But I guess the last frost date around here is in mid-April, I don't remember exactly.
Anyway. On Wed we went up to get one of the downed calves. (The other one is already out in the hay shed) Hubby took the tractor and hip attachment thingy (I dunno the official name for it.) and chains, I brought the 4-wheeler with the little wagon. Calf was down in a ravine and I was petrified that he was going to tip the tractor over getting down to her, but he didn't. He attached the hip-thingy to her hip bones and lifted her out of there and hoisted her onto the cart and I brought her back here. Then after all that she died that night. Well, I guess you can't save them all.
On Wed evening our bull calf-buyer called and said she wasn't going to be able to buy them any more. So that kind of leaves us hanging. Of course you can always take them to the auction, but that's a lot of trouble. But then again I understand her point; it's a pain to raise them because you have to get milk replacer and all sorts of other stuff, which is pretty expensive.
So yesterday we get a bull calf. Ha. Hubby has someone coming over 60 miles to get him. That is a long way for one little calf. Today we got another heifer calf. They are cute.
Bye for now.
