Can't argue with you Seren, a calf in December not exactly ideal; wet, cold weather, very little grass, fields all turn to mud if cattle left on them... so they need to be indoors where I need to feed them etc etc. A consequence of economics I'm afraid! Cattle in Wales cannot be moved without a TB test and we do not have a bull, so the cows went to a neighbours bull after they had a Ministry paid for annual TB test - our annual TB testing time is November which resulted in calves late in the year... and this daft cow even later than that as she went well overdue!
Good reason to be excited running for Wales Seren, well done Are you running the course as well Nutty?
Good to see enterprise going on Tracey, hope your friend continues to do well
Not been to many funerals thankfully I don't have that many relatives, which I suppose on that front is a blessing in disguise? I have a nice reminder of mortality each time I roll out of bed in the morning!
On the upside we had a calf born on Wednesday - it has survived the last couple of nights, so fingers crossed it will be OK now No idea what sex it is yet as I haven't wanted to stress the cow to find out - be time to have a peek today methinks and stick a photo on FB - would stick it on here but for some reason RW doesn't let me post photos!
