Dawn, who blogs over at The Flightless Writer, and has written the terrific book, Ripples on the Lake, had requested a calf named after herself, and a calf named after the main character in her book, Saffron Delaney. The Bag Lady knew that this cow was the last chance for a light-coloured calf, so had already determined that this calf would be Saffron.
Imagine the Bag Lady's surprise when she went down this morning and discovered that the cow had given birth to another calf overnight! So it is almost as though it were ordained that these were the calves to be named for Dawn and Saffron (they are both heifers, too!)
Here are DAWN and SAFFRON:

And the Bag Lady should perhaps have taken this sign in the sky as a warning!! Seriously, next time there is a big X in the sky, the Bag Lady is going to take cover.
