Calf Watch 2016

The Twins are going to be Mommies!!!


Franci is due on 5/14 and Miracle is due on 5/21.  
Because they are first timers they can go up to two weeks early....which would be now!

We noticed during chore time tonight that Franci's udder has really grown in the last few days.  And we could see Miracle's baby moving around in there.  What fun.  I hope that we have a bit of a "warning" and time because my parents want to be on hand to see the birth and they live an hour away.  And Boy keeps asking various friends if they want to be here for it too. He seems to forget that I slept in the barn the last time when Hershey went into labor and it was still two days before we saw hooves.  And then MORE hooves.

In the meantime, I've been bringing the girls in and clipping them at the milking stations to give them a bit of sweet feed.  They will do most anything for Sweet Feed. In the past two days I've even been able to wash their udders and run the milker to help them get used to the routine.  

So here is a picture of my "Radiant" Miracle Moo.
