our first calving . . .

Asher got out to do his chores around 9:00 today and came RUNNING back into the house to tell us that Janey was about to give birth.  All of us scurried to go out to see our first calving here at the farm.  For us, it was a lesson in nature, and an educational experience.  She did really well and the whole process took around 30 to 40 minutes.  And thank God, there were no complications at all.  Smooth and beautiful!
 The calf is a heifer and is a jersey/devon mix.  Our intention is to feed it out for our family's beef.
She sure is cute!
