This just in…….. Hat wearing diva gives birth

There is a benefit in brag,
that the speaker is unconsciously expressing his own ideal.
Humor him by all means;
draw it all out, and hold him to it.
                         Ralph Waldo Emerson


Bossy2 began her career as a hat wearing diva on a small insignificant blog based out of Canada. Unbeknownst to Bossy2, her face has been seen by many hat wearing cow fans, all across this world. I try to keep her humble by playing down this popularity, but sometimes even I get a little excited.

Bossy2 gave birth to a little heifer (girl). This event could possibly lead to another hat wearing diva in the making. This little heifer certainly does have the face for it. Just look at that cute little face. On St. Paddy’s Day, the not so little bundle of joy entered this world just before sunset. This snowy white, cute little face will be named Patty. If you have never heard of Bossy2 you may have to look at the header shot or you can do a search for Diva in the search box located on the sidebar of this blog. I realize that now I need to get some more hats knitted, but time has not been on my side as of late.


Things are busy here on the farm. The two orphaned calves, Louie and Lucy need to be fed only twice a day now. There are now fourteen cousins running around, which those two will be joining, hopefully soon. I have to tell you it is like a day care around here. All that running around, kicking up their hooves, and chasing each other and my trying to take attendance by counting is exhausting. Yes it is just like taking attendance in an uncontrolled daycare. I would be the person trying to keep some control of things but truth be told they will not stop running, and I think I heard giggles. The weather has been kind lately so Louie and Lucy are now outside during the day. They have been running around enjoying their new found freedom. It is almost time to join their cousins. That will be an exciting day I am sure.


I have been introducing Louie and Lucy, to let us call it cereal because sometimes you need more than milk to grow. Well, Louie had no problem, after all he is a big hungry boy but picky Lucy has taken her time. This morning with the sun rising and the temperatures a balmy one degree Celsius, Louie must have convinced Lucy to try the cereal. I think we can safely say I will not have any problems now. She seems to like it.


I will keep this blog post short today as I have to get back outside. It looks like there are probably going to be another couple of new calves joining our little day care today. I am so happy spring is coming. This day care is going to be more photogenic in fields of green grass.

If anyone is growing tired of all these cow/calf photos please let me know.

So what have you been up to this March Break? Want to come help me?

  1. Patty is a real Diva in the making. She so cute. It will be fun to see her grow and wearing hats like her Diva mother. We are still in winter here as we had to big storm back to back. Hopefully the cold will disappear and be replaced by a warming trend.
    Good luck with the calving season.
    Hugs,
    JB

  8. Miss B,
    We are down to 9 heifers to calf. I checked them after dinner and it looks like no one is in a hurry to have a baby. It's windy and dirty today.

    I like calf pictures. :)

  25. First thank you, thank you so much. I will look at the beautiful picture of the small clearing in the woods, with the sun shining through, and think of you and your kindness. Bossy2's new calf is so pretty. I have to tell you that yesterday a cow came meandering into our front yard. She belonged to the neighbors and had just given birth to a calf, so small she was able to get under the fencing somehow. The neighbors let the cow out so she could protect the little heifer from predators. And the other day, I saw their other young calf chase the filly across the fields. This went on until mama cow had enough and chased the filly away. So adorable to watch though.
