Spring is on its way and I am wasting no time getting ready. I have tested by soil and everything looks good to go!

Baby calf born tonight!

I think I missed the birth by minutes, shoot! It's solid black and I think it's a girl :)
When I first saw the calf I didn't know whose it was because it was sitting behind one cow who was sitting on the ground looking normal (not like it had just given birth) and the other cows were all standing close looking at it. After I went to the house to tell a sleeping Konrad what he was missing, I returned and all 3 cows were nosing the calf to get it to stand up. Someone was mooing softly but I honestly couldn't have told you which one was her mother. It was so cool! It reminded me of elephants. When I returned from another trip to the house to get the camera I was pretty certain it was Rosie's calf, the red one.
I decided to leave and quit shining my flashlight in their eyes.
I'll try to get a better picture in the daylight.

Happy St.Patrick's Day!

The boys starting making eggs for breakfast and I suggested a little greenery. Unfortunatley there was no ham available to go with our green eggs, but we just got word that our steer meat is ready so one morning soon we will have steak and eggs.
