Every mother appreciates an audience when giving birth....but learning the facts of life can be a little much for the weak of heart.In the past week, the youngsters have learnt a lot as three calves joined the herd. First to arrive, Bathsheba:
Followed by a Mother's Day surprise with unusual ears:It being the year of 'B', we couldn't name her 'Foxy' or 'Photoshop Gone Wrong'. Fortunately, Blossom was the name picked using our random number generator (...Humph picking a number between 1 and 13. Took several attempts and explanation that 14 was not a valid choice). Congratulations to Lesley Parkins and Douglas Fryer for a very apt name!
We welcome Betsy to the world! A good, strong name for a sizeable calf, suggested by Sue Fuller. Betsy, born in a snowstorm, has decided that she will only sit in patches of snow.
More calves to worry Farmer Humph at the end of March!
