Guess What We Found?
Yeah the same old song and dance from me. A new baby calf! Well it's exciting to us. To John because it will bring money when it is larger and to me 'cause they are so darn cute. This one is a solid beige one. It was just born last night because John saw the Mama yesterday and she hadn't had her baby yet. This Mama is one of the trusting ones. She gave birth near the herd and already joined them with the little one this morning and she wasn't minding us being near. We are having 70 degree weather every day and 40's for the low. By 9:30 I was ready to shed my light jacket down to a short sleeve shirt. Wonderful weather but I'm not bragging to you snow bound friends as I know we will be begging for rain and cooler temps this summer. About six turtles bobbed up to eat. Poor things are so blind I practially have to bounce the bread off their head to get their attention. The roadrunners and cardinals were out doing thier thing as we mended a short piece of fence. All is well at the ranch and we are home before lunch.
