How was your 4th of July?
Here is was a little busy. Several of us are working with the Horizons program and had floats in the parades to advertise and recruit. Tuesday: work, parade in Gilbert, fireworks in Eveleth. Wednesday: parade in Eveleth, BBQ at someone's house, chores at home, fireworks in Virginia.
We have a new addition to our home. One of our cattle had a calf yesterday. His name will either be Sam or Independence being as he chose to become independent on Independence Day. Momma was with the other cattle, but they moved closer to the house and she was out across the field. Got the other animals into their pens: 10 goats, 3 geese, 1 horse, and 10 other cattle. Went out there and she had done well. Later checked on her again and she appeared to be feeding the little guy. This morning we went out and she and baby continue to be doing well. Let's hope that they both do okay until one of us has a chance today to get home and check on them. She did amazingly well for her first calf and she never should have been bred as she is too small. She was bred when we got her from a sale and we didn't know it.
Would love to hear what the rest of you did for the 4th of July!
