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.
