|Woodpecker that comes around once and a while.
At the end of January, Whisper and Willow calved. Both of them had little bull calves! It's so nice to have babies on the farm and what an experience for the kids and for us. I have seen many a cow birth but for my husband and kids, this was their first. We don't have names yet and I will have to get on that soon!
|Pretty foggy morning,
|Whisper's calf. He is 2 months old.
|Willow's calf. He is about 2 months old here.
We are also waiting on our Charolais heifer to calve. We didn't think our Dexter bull did anything but apparently he managed to breed her!! So one more calf to go and we will be done for this year! I am thinking in the next couple of weeks as she is just starting to show signs.
We also took on a bottle calf to feed. This is a new experience for us and it is going really well, so we will probably pick up a couple more!!
The little starter greenhouse I have in the house is now full of little sprouts and new seeds. Hopefully the nights get a little warmer as I need to move some out to it so I can get more started!! This year we are going to try and do 3 Farmers' Markets. Renfrew, Eganville and Deep River. I am still unsure of Deep River as I still have to work out the logistics of it. But I am sure we will get everything figured out.
|This is Baby....I am sure he won't be that for long. He is
our bottle calf.
