#6's calf will hopefully solve the problem...

Top picture is of the long awaited calf belonging to poor #6. The calf arrived around 1 pm on Sunday & these pictures were taken around 6 pm. It's hard to see from this angle (bottom pic), but the calf seems to have solved the problem for all teats except the front left. I'm hoping it will take care of that one today!!! According to the feed store manager, this is not an uncommon thing, and calving usually solves it. I'm hoping he's right but plan to keep a close eye on her just in case.

Please don't let this be mastitis!

POOR #6...I hope she calves immediately & that solves this problem. I have never seen anything remotely similar to this.

More new calves!

#187 (bottom photo) calved Sunday morning followed by #213 (top photo) that afternoon. Both had calves on the small side, so thankfully no problems with delivery. I feel very blessed that there have been absolutely no calving problems so far this year & that all the calves are healthy & growing well.

New arrival

Well, it looks like our young stallion, Seve's Pushover, managed to sire a foal without our help. We did NOT plan to breed Jamaica Mistake; nevertheless, our little accident is a real cutie: black filly with huge star & snip.
