Calving Drama !

April 15th, 2013

calf april 2013

Bit of a drama with this one!
Came back from a walk with friends yesterday to find a cow (that we had been checking every 30 minutes for 8 hours !!) had decided to have it’s baby when farmer Tom had nipped into the house for a quick coffee. Typical !! Calf was stuck half way out its mum, pinned against a gate with it’s calving bag stuck over its head. I burst the bag and pulled the calf out with just moments to spare ! Phew !

New puppies!
