Of course on one of the coldest nights of the year so far, we had our first born calf. Born just at dusk. He struggled on the snowy ground to get his legs under him. The temperature kept dropping by the hour. -14 degrees with the wind chill we decided to bring him in for the night.
Under the space heater in our mudroom and the warm cuddle of our border collie Bandit, he thawed out and we took him out to his mother at the crack of dawn. The temperature had risen to a balmy 10 degrees! As of this afternoon, he is doing great and was nestled in the grass.
He is soooo cute! Only 97 more to go!!!!!!
