New Babies

It must be spring ... the first of our babes came home today.  Yes, back towards the end of February, at Holloway Farms Ltd. (www.hollowayfarmsltd.com) 3rd Annual Horned Hereford Rancher's Bull Sale, we purchased not only some bulls but some bred heifers as well.  The only problem, the heifers were scheduled to start calving mid-end of March.  We are fair weather 'May 1st' calver's since we don't have the facilities to calve cows in March.  However, lucky for us, my husband was able to strike a deal with Holloway's that they would calve out the heifers for us!  I was never so thankful for that agreement when that lovely spring snow storm hit last week!

The calves are healthy and happy, the sun was shining, the snow was melting and in a few more weeks the rest of our herd will begin calving!  You gotta love spring!
