I just have to laugh sometimes when I read texts between Harland and I.
Here’s an exchange between us last night when he was at a fire dept. meeting and I was left home to guard the fort:
(My texts are in bold.)
7:43pm – Hey, call me..
7:43pm – What’s up?
7:44pm – Bag about the size of a chicken. No sign of labor. And she’s trying the gates.
7:46pm – That’s how she looked at 6:30
7:47pm – Want me to give her another hour?
7:47pm – Yes
8:52pm – No change. And she’s trying to get out near the feed bunk. R we going to have to pull?
8:57pm – Don’t know
8:59pm – U might ask Andrew or Charlie along. Don’t want to do this alone
We were in for a long evening….
Tune in tomorrow to see what all this nonsense means, and how it all turned out.
Don’t you just love it when I leave you hanging???
LOL…my husband just called me…”Did you check that cow?”
I go check her and call him back. (He doesn’t text) “She’s standing up, looking close.”
Him…”No legs out yet?”
Oh the conversations we have! 🙂
Sounds just like us! “Both feet out? And a nose? Is she off by herself?” LOL!
Heifer calf, just born 10 minutes ago! Cow wouldn’t lay down…you’d think after 4 calves, that it’s rather difficult to give birth standing up!!
We had a heifer do that last year. Harland watched and said later that the calf was “shot out of her like a watermelon seed”. 🙂
My oldest son is anxiously waiting for his 4-H heifer to calve. I am, quite frequently, getting pictures messages from him as changes occur. I REALLY hope I don’t lose my phone…
Sounds scary with gloves!
I know what you’re “talking” about!! Hope she does okay!
