It's a girl!

The first calf of the season was born late Thursday night.  We were suspicious of Mama cow being in labor that evening and when we went to check on her about 10pm there was a new calf being licked clean.  Everyone was doing good, so we kept our distance.  Yesterday she was up and running around between naps, so last night she got her vitamin A&D and Bo-se shots once they had settled down.  Mama Agnes is one of the calmest cows we have, but she's being a very good protective mother, so we haven't got much for pictures yet.  She wasn't too thrilled that we were giving the baby shots and when hubby picked her up to get a weight estimate.  I think we've decided on a name for her, Emma.
