There has finally been a new calf born on the ranch! She made her debut on Friday night around midnight, so the Bag Lady went out yesterday morning and took her picture (here she is, being checked out by some of the rest of the herd): (please click on any of the pictures to enlarge)
It was cold and wet in the morning, but warmed up a little in the afternoon. Unfortunately, this is what everyone woke up to this morning:
When the Bag Lady made her customary trek out to the pasture to check the cows, she found the little calf doing the smartest thing possible under the circumstances - cuddling up to mom and filling her belly with nice, warm milk:
This is the cow's view of the ranch from their sheltered spot at the far west end, looking back toward the house (behind those far trees):
And this is what the Bag Lady's garden looked like this morning. Don't think she'll be able to plant anything for a little while yet:
Hope your weekend is going well!
Edited to add: the Bag Lady had another "first" this morning - there was a lynx in her yard! This is the first time she's ever seen one, and it was very exciting!
