Tia is half Holstein, the most common dairy cow on Earth, and Half Angus the favorite beef cow of America. Like my favorite sparrows she is terribly common. But the nicest heifer on the property. And wide! But you and I know that size has nothing to do with it when discussing pregnancy in cows. On this shot she is all out to the left side but this is due to her craning her neck around to see what I am doing back there.
If we were looking for a calf we would be looking for a bulge low on her right side. ‘b’ for baby – and actually Tia does look bulgy in all the right places.
The Six looked like they were getting bored with the weather so I threw them a box to play with.There are no staples – they played with it for ages and now it is in little pieces that will become bedding and eventually compost.
Tracks through the snow.
More snow on the way this weekend – I can find varying reports on how much snow but they all say it will blow then get really cold. Windy snow is a different matter. I will have to shut barn doors and you know how I hate to shut the animals in.
But we will see. The weekend is days away yet. Frankly next week looks worse.
