Andrew: "Not yet."
Ahhh Hah! Sally had had her baby!!!!!!!!!
Apparently, Andrew had heard her mooing softly last night and wondered if she had calved. Upon further investigation, he found a several-day-old calf by her side. :) I guess with all that's been going on here, nobod's been checking on her daily...
Andrew headed out to the pasture on the 4-wheeler to get her in the barn lot and I slipped on a jacket and went out to help get her in the barn. It's been about 3 months since we dried her up and I knew she'd be a little stubborn. (Can you see Andrew in this picture?)
When we finally did get mother and baby in the barn, said mother was a bit nervous and left a mess to clean up later...
At last, we got Sally to go in her stall and then Andrew milked her (we're doing it by hand these days) while I held the smelly tail so Andrew could maintain a clean face!
As the milk got dirty in all the excitement, the cats were more than happy this morning! We locked the calf up now, so hopefully we'll be able to save a bunch of milk tonight--just in time for Sabbath.
