Big number 9 cow had a good sized black heifer on 5/12/13. I found them away from everyone else and had finally found the calf and checked its gender when it jumped up at a dead run and was even scared of mom. Eventually she caught up with the calf and they worked things out.
The robins and the swallows all arrived in the same couple of days around the 11th. Late this year for the robins and earlier than last year for the swallows. The robin songs and the swallow skeeter eatin are all appreciated.

Tierra #2 went off to the snow banks to have her calf- a large white heifer with black points and a black crown. She had picked her spot yesterday but was interrupted with the carrot delivery and came up to eat. She is being a good mother and tucked the calf on a small spot of bare ground but it is cold with freezing rain.
Priscilla delivered a dainty long legged (very wild) white heifer with red points. Rose Marie was born with her tail bent up behind her back. It has returned to normal but when she lifts her tail it still goes completely over her back!
This white cow had a black heifer on April 28. At least three of the cows have lost their numbers in less than three weeks.

Farmers in Alberta were complaining that spring was about 2 weeks late. Still snow drifts on the fields.
