|This baby calf is so cute|
The other night my son's girlfriend was over at our house, when hubby came in and told us that their was a heifer out in the barn trying to have a baby calf. Mac lives on a farm, but her Dad buys calves and finishes them out than sale them. So, Mac has never seen a baby calf born. Mac was all over it when hubby asked her if she would like to see one born. Parker and her got their coats on and headed out to the barn to watch the heifer. They were out there probably an hour and they started to get cold, so they came in to get something to eat and get warmed up and than headed back out. As for me, I've been up since 4am and I was starting to get really tired, so I was heading to bed real soon. This all was taking place around 8pm.
The heifer finally had her baby and Mac was right their to watch it all. Living on the farm we take for granted that everyone has got to see baby calf born. Calving every year is such apart of our life, that we forget that some people from the city have never got to experience the birth of a calf.
The next day Mac's Mom called me and said Mac had a hard time getting to sleep, because she was so wound up from seeing that baby calf born.
I was working at the bank last week and asked the bosses son, Noah if his wife and son still wanted to see a baby calf born. Noah said yes, they were still wanting to. I got Noah's phone number in case we had one this weekend. Hubby called me this afternoon and said that one of the heifers water had broken and it would be soon.. Hubby than called Noah's wife to see if they were able to come out. They hopped in the car and were out here in a few minutes.
The little boy loved watching the birth of that baby calf . The only bad thing was we were all getting cold waiting for that calf to get here. I never dress warm enough when I go to the barn, that's just me. Needless to say they didn't dress warm enough either being from the city, but we all stuck it out and watched this little calf being born.
