Calves!

Jimoo was the first to go into labor. She had twins, TWINS! a rare thing for beef cows. The first was practically dead when she was born but after 36 hours of intensive care by all of us she made it through and is now super frisky. The little black and white one came out moments after the little brown girl. No problems with her. The sisters like to sleep next to each other and run in circles.

Jimoo cleaning up the second born. She was up in a matter of minutes while the rest of us still raced to save the first born.

Here are pictures of the all the calves. Lolabelle’s girl is named Bluebell, but Lu or Blue for short.

Clover had a bull calf (as I predicted). His name is still to be determined.

The twins…

more Blue…
