The Bag Lady had a wild and crazy weekend.
Well, okay, maybe not. She and the Rancher did have some company on Saturday and a good time was had by all. About the only wild and crazy part, though, was the weather. There were some pretty intense thunderstorms that blew through, but nothing like what they had in Edmonton, where trees were knocked down all over the place and there was quite a lot of property damage.
Here is a picture she took of one of the storm fronts as it moved in.
Both Friday and Saturday were quite hot, and the Bag Lady felt a little sorry for the newest addition to the ranch. This calf was born on Friday and spent a lot of time just lying about in the hot sun!
His mother finally stood up and provided him with a little shade. He seemed none the worse for wear on Sunday, though, and was bouncing and running with the rest of the calves. There are still a few more calves to be born (this has been the longest calving season yet on the ranch!), but they probably won't arrive for a couple more weeks.
