Half an hour later, she went back out and looked at the yellow cow that was quite obviously going to have a calf. She was a little perplexed, because this was the cow she had looked at the first time, and the other one that she had followed was standing facing her, looking like she was not going to calve. The second yellow cow finally turned around and the Bag Lady could see that yes, she was going to calve, and yes, the other yellow cow was also going to calve!! (They were trying to mess with the Bag Lady's head...)
So we had two cows calve this morning. Unfortunately, one of the cows decided that she wants absolutely nothing to do with her calf! The Cowboy, however, is a very experienced cow man, and he took the abandoned calf and gave it to the other yellow cow. She seems to have accepted the fact that she now has two babies. She is mothering both of them. The other yellow cow doesn't seem to even miss her calf. Sigh. Some females just aren't cut out to be mothers!
But this cow obviously is. Here is MIZFIT:
Named for this terrific blogger. Who better to adopt an abandoned calf?
And here is TIDBIT:
Who is named for Bunnygirl's rabbit, in the hopes that this good strong calf will impart some wellness on a sick rabbit!
The Bag Lady also managed to put her garden in today. She put in potatoes, onions, garlic, carrots, peas, lettuce and spinach. Lots of spinach so she can dehydrate it for Bunnygirl!! (hehehehe) She didn't put in nearly as much as she has in previous years, because
she is getting old and lazy she has never had the proper storage area, so some of it went to waste.
She would also like to direct your attention to a new blogger. Her brother, Rikk, has started a blog. He has been a city boy pretty much all his life, and is currently living in Mexico in a rural setting. He has been sending newsletters to family and friends back home, and we have been encouraging him to blog about it (for sanity's sake!) Please, click here, and go leave a comment so he won't feel quite so lonely. You could maybe even leave it in Spanish so he gets a little practice!
Enjoy your day!
