Guess Who Had A Baby?
Remember number12? The cow that had a blind and somewhat deformed calf last year? She was blogged about, special fed, checked on until you were probably sick of hearing about her. Her baby was named Josie and number12 was such a good mother. Now she has a new baby. I haven't seen it, but according to John it is okay, not blind and is normal. Don't know why Josie was born that way. John is still burning pear every other morning but the grass is greening up. As soon as it gets a little taller the cows will go to it and leave the pear so John can stop that hot hard job. The cows have come through the winter nicely. The turtles have stayed in the mud with the cold and wind. Hope to start feeding them soon. John says he saw a lot of cotton tails in different areas. I guess I need to sprinkle out the pellets and feed more or them. I lost my "one time use camera" almost full of pictures. I was highly let down when I didn't find it last time I went out to the ranch. You know how I think I have a talent for finding lost things. Unless I left it on the seat of the truck and someone picked it up. John lost his binoculars that way. The big John Deere and the little David Brown tractors will be going to a new home soon. John gave them to his son and daughter. I guess there has to be a start to the winding down process. He still wants to ranch one or two more years except when someone runs through the fence. We need rain badly, but the stock tank is full and the water well still works.
