Ok, Ok... Getting to the point now! We have beef cows out to pasture behind our house (also known as Hereford cattle), and one of them was expecting! The little guy and I had been keeping a close eye on her since we moved in about 6 weeks ago and I was really hoping for a Mother's Day surprise... Well she calved in two days early! On Friday, May 8th, "Ruby" gave birth to a beautiful, healthy, heifer calf! And although we missed the actual birth (total bummer), we did get to see her shortly thereafter. She shares her mother's red coloring and we are super excited to get to watch her nurse and fumble around the barnyard. Just check her out!! We have affectionately named her "Mae."
