    Got both the mommas in the barn, stall still needs to be cleaned well and I am not certain that will get done before Hottie calves. If she holds to the same pattern she has for the last 3 years, she will be calving on Friday between 5-7 pm. She is obviously close, has a good size bag, super relaxed in the rear end, and looking just plain uncomfortable. I will try and get some pictures to share this evening.

    Here are pictures from Monday. She has a big bag, very springy in the rear.

    Had a talk with Hottie last night, told her she needs to stay on this schedule and have that baby today!

    We have a healthy bull calf!! Born 4/8/17 (on her due date) at 5:30 pm roughly. He was a bit big for her and it took way longer than I was comfortable with but everything worked out just fine. She had an audience as I sent my daughter to get the one neighbor in case she couldn't get him out and then the other neighbors came over too.

    No name yet although we have a couple of ideas.

    He weighed 53 lbs at 24 hours old.

    He has a name! Eugene! From Tangled and the Gene part fit because it took like 30 minutes after he was born for him to get his tongue in his mouth.

    Thought I would share a video and photo of Eugene.

    And Swishy as roughly 13 days left. She is getting quite big, springy in the rear, and starting to get a bag. I am thinking we will get her in the barn this weekend. She should be good with Hottie and Eugene until she calves.
