It’s calving season here at A Rusty Knoll. Malie stared us off September 5th with a bull calf, Percival. Driving in that day I was 1 cow short. Counted again and knew I needed to go look for the missing lady. Found Malie in a wild area with a new calf still wet. She had passed the afterbirth and both were doing well. Because of the location she chose I brought water to her in buckets. It took her two days before she made it back up to the waters. She was about a week early but last year she delivered at least a month early. She is a good mom and the calf seems to be doing well.

With the arrival of this calf my heifer is no more. 🙁 With their second calf they becmoe a COW, Malie is a big girl now.
