It’s a girl! April 26, 2009

Time is a funny thing. One the one hand it seems like only yesterday we bought our first two heifers from a friend of ours, and yet on the other hand it seems like they’ve been a part of Blessed Acres Farm for quite some time.

But it hasn’t been too long, since this month, #6 and #7, affectionately known as Gloria and Lacy to the kids, turned two years old. And what a way to celebrate. #6 had her first calf today. It’s a little girl.

The new calf, yet unnamed, seemed to know what exactly what to do. Mama, despite the picture above, is not 100% sure she wants to be nursed. I think she’ll figure it out soon though. Her protective instinct has been spot on; she protects her calf from the others and watches over her pretty well.

Here’s a close up on the new little girl. I think she’ll one day grow into those ears.

We’re thankful to another friend who allowed us to borrow their registered bull last summer to make this day possible.

I know the entire family must be so excited about the new baby. I can’t wait to meet her.

Yes, she will grow into her ears……Dani did! Boy, did she but she has been on a diet and is looking a lot better.
