The Nursery Is Ready
Shelly Marie looks to be very near having her baby calf. If its a boy I will name him Noel. If its a girl I will name her Merry. She looked so close to day we called her in to the pens so we will know where she is when she gives birth. She has hay, water, and we gave her some cubes to munch on. She acted restless and miserable but when we went back out late this afternoon she seemed calm. For some reason John thinks she may have twins. She never has before but she has had a lot of babies and they have all been very healthy after losing the first one when she was young. I had a long talk with her while the trough was filling with water and she listened to every word. I wished her an easy and fast birth with a healthy baby.
