Monday afternoon our cow Pixie delivered a cute little dun colored heifer calf! She had her during the sunny part of the day, down by the pond. We've been expecting her to deliver, but as obstinate as she is, we were not able to get her into the barnyard prior to the delivery. In fact, we weren't able to get her into the barnyard AFTER the delivery, either! I think we've determined the next COW we'll be selling!
The calf was just a few hours old when I saw her out in the pasture. I popped right on out to take some photos. She had already been standing and nursing, so things were going well.
We're glad that Pixie delivered her baby shortly after Pixie Dust delivered her calf (Manetta's Valentine). Now the two will be good friends and playmates.
Speaking of little Manetta, here she is with her mama, Pixie Dust. They were down by the pond when I went to check on the new baby. Enjoying the sunshine!
