"Both look to have some nice weight. Mama is very handsome.
So how long did it take to get your circulation back? It's nice when they don't kick, considering the circumstances. I've been almost up to my armpit once. Thought my arm was gonna fall off."
>>>*Yes, this is a nice little herd, just 7 heifers and the big bull. The Bull is purebred Angus and a big rangy fellow, the Cows are mixed so that usually makes for big calves.
I never would have managed to pull the thing, it was just too big for her.
When my old arms died on me, that rope and fence post sure did help.
I did this once before when I was a kid, usually I just watched Mom and Dad deliver them when they got into trouble.
That makes two new calves so far and from the signs, another one tomorrow sometime.
It really is a wonderful experience, bringing a life into the world, especially when it's so bad like this that we think we lost the Calf. Both would have died except for us.
So far just two calves, lots of puppies and kitties, too many Sheep to count and I have one live human delivery to my credit. I should hire myself out, huh?... ...*EB
