There were several definite blessings yesterday. #1: This is THE week I really wanted Chessie bred, as if she takes from this time, which we’re praying for, she’ll go dry the week Chrissie calves and we won’t be without milk. #2: Gayle was home yesterday; he rarely has a day off, and I could not have done the job myself. #3: The calf should be a good dual-purpose calf, good for meat if a bull and milk if a heifer. Wonder what a black-and-white Belted Galloway/brown Jersey cross calf will look like?
Looking south from Cathedrals Road, on the way to Manuka Bay, towards the Hurunui River.
Looking north or west from Cathedrals Road. The views from this road are spectacular!
That bull looks like a giant oreo cookie. 🙂 What an adventure–hope you end up with a nice calf.
