As we start a new blog, it is fitting to write that blog about another new beginning.
Over the weekend when feeding the cattle we discovered this little cutie pie. Our first calf born on Aloncaws. Estimated here as 2 days old, and just gorgeous. Although mum is a red Beltie, this little cutie pie is jet black - not even a tinge of red in the coat.
Whilst we had been fairly confident that mum was pregnant, she had been running year round with the bull prior to arriving on Aloncaws, and we had no idea of service date. On that basis, we guessed that she might be serviced about 2 months after the last calf had been born, which would put her due date at around mid June. Looks like we were only about a week or two off on our estimate.
