My apologies to a special young man in England that I didn’t get this post on before now. I hope he has time to see it before he goes home from Grandma and Grandpa’s.
I, along with many other Holton Lions members, have been busy running a food canteen and pie booth at a Prairie Pickers at the Prairie Lake of Holton, Kansas. We were there Thursday and Friday evening, and most of the day Saturday. The heat and humidity was high, so we were pretty hot at times. Thankfully there was a nice breeze now and then from off the lake.
Now for the highlights. We have started having our 2016 calves in April. We have four live calves that are doing great. Two more to go. Jezzy is due any day. I am not so sure that she is overdue at this point. Kind of worries me a little. This is her second calf, and I am hoping that it will not be too big to have. And she is kind of my pet! I know I am not supposed to make a pet out of a cow, but she is sooo sweet. At least for me. And I have got her not to head butt when she wants petted. She will gently put her head on my leg sometimes still but she doesn’t always get so rough. Unless the flies are really bothering her. Then she gets kind of pushy.
Wanita had the first calf. We did finally get close enough to see that it was a bull calf. It has been bouncing around and playing. Now he has three friends to play with. I haven’t yet gotten a video of that.
Gotta go for now. Going to go to Wetmore, Kansas to the Wetmore Dinner Bell Cafe for chicken dinner. And pay the owner for all the wonderful pies and cobblers she made for the Prairie Pickers this weekend.
Stay Safe and God Bless!
