A Lucky Little Fellow

Monday morning we had an exciting start to the day.  When Caleb moved the big cow/goat/alpaca/sheep herd at 6 am, he realized our cow Bridget was in the middle of having a calf.  There were two little feet sticking out, the right ones even (front), but after a while we decided things were not progressing as they should, and maybe the calf's head was back.

Are We Still in Tennessee?

A few weeks ago, on our anniversary (12 years!! June 25) we took a really lovely family trip (with our new-found abundance of family time since Caleb's home almost all the time now) to the farm of some friends, down in Lost Cove on the side of the mountain. They have been telling us to come visit, bring the kids and see the animals for months now, because they've had a small herd of buffalo for about a year!  We finally got our ducks in a row, packed up a picnic brunch, and did it!
