Read Me Please!
Check out this awesome article my brother read while working in Alaska and recommended via FB. Ugh, FB. I hate it so much I don’t even feel like typing the full word, facebook. But it’s useful for keeping track of Californians in Alaska while living in Maryland. . .
In other news, the cow in the foreground here, Number 12, had her calf yesterday afternoon (in the middle of a rain storm, of course). It’s a little black heifer–yay for girls! This means she will grow up to be another mommy cow and not a steak. And it means our farmers get to increase their herd size, so they are very happy. We knew she was due that day, and the farmer noted that the reason it seems like livestock always pick stormy days to calf/foal/lamb etc. is because the change of air pressure affects them and makes them go into labor. Good reason not to fly in my last months of pregnancy 😉
Hopefully I will get some photos of the newby soon.
