Wow! Today has been super busy. First I had my load of hay delivered, (and got all 150 bales stacked). And second, but most important – Fancy had her calf! Yippee! At 12:30 pm on the dot, her beautiful little heifer calf was born while we all stood around quietly watching.
The membrane was stuck on her nose and she was wrinkling it so I pulled it off so she could breathe.
Fancy’s face right after the calf popped out – it almost looks like she’s thinking: “Is that mine? Did I do that?”
Baby was attempting to go out the door – or I should say scooting out the door 🙂
She kept tipping over every time she tried to get up so I figured I’d lend a helping hand

I’m so happy! My barn is stacked roof high with sweet-smelling, green hay for winter, and I have the cutest little heifer sleeping in the pen with my Fancy. It’s been a good day.
