oh boy what a morning

 I remember asking my oldest girls if they would move to Oklahoma. They said, "Oh no Mom, its too rural and not exciting."  Well they needed to be here this morning.
Alan was getting ready to go to work. So he went to check a heifer that was in the corral because she was really close to calving. We like to have them close by just in case there are problems. I went to let the chickens out of the hen house. I was done and went to where Alan was. He said she is in the process of having her calf.
So we got our cups of coffee and a pair of binocular and sat in his truck a way back by the chicken coop. We had been watching for a while and things were going slow. So I was checking out the chickens when all  of a sudden there is a SKUNK in with the chickens.
That is not a good thing.
At the same time, Alan tells me we are going to have to help the heifer. So he goes to get what was needed and I go to take care of getting rid of the SKUNK. Now please excuse me  for not stopping and taking a picture of the SKUNK. I just did not think it would be prudent. So then after the ordeal with the SKUNK,  I went to help Alan. We had to use the birthing chains. Everything went very well.

Hello new world

 As you see, she is a good mother. (so is Alan)

Alan helping her a little.


Well now if that was not enough excitement. We were on our way back to the house and what do we see but some of the cows in the yard. They had push the yard gate open and were enjoying themselves to my yard. So now we had to herd them out. Let me tell you, they did not want to leave freshly mowed grass. Oh so tender. YUMMY


You know by the time we were done with all that, it was only 8:30am. Girls if that's not enough excitement. Well I just don't know what to tell ya.
