We finally got the old windmill from my Grandparent's homestead installed on our farm. My husband had to completely rebuild the inner workings and a new tower, but the rest is original. My mom and uncle remember it as kids pumping water for their cow trough.
My dad brought over his versa-lift to hoist it up on the tower, along with help from a few others.

This little calf had us worried because Mama didn't seem to have enough milk in her udder. I was ready to bottle feed, but really didn't want to intervene unless necessary. We've been keeping a close eye on him, and I'm feeling much better after watching him romp around this evening. A big thank you to everyone that offered advise!

In sticking with the naming convention of the American Highland Cattle Association, (which by the way really helps) all of our calves this year start with the letter 'F'. So without further ado, I introduce Flank, joining his half sisters Fuschia and Fiona.
