If you’ve been following my blog for very long you may remember a post of another orphan I had in April of 2013 and her name was Annabelle.
Well, Annabelle presented us with her first baby on September 8th with a huge black/white face bull calf.
I was worried to death about her the day he was born. She was in labor most of the day and we try not to help with birthing unless we see a problem. Well, by 8:00 p.m. that night she still hadn’t had him yet so Eddie and I went back to the house to get halter, ropes and pulling stick and headed back to the woods and it hadn’t already gotten dark. When we found her she had already had him and he was up nursing and very alert. Great job Annabelle on the your first calf!!! We’ve learned that if you let Mother Nature takes its course is usually better for all involved.
