Spring Training in Montana, update
Today, just 6 days after we previewed the boys in the bull pen, these ladies, there must have been at least 300, were on their way to their home ranch to have their calves. If you note closely, there are no calves with the girls. The typical rancher has the pregnant cows near his home so that he can check them every 2 - 3 hours, 24 hours a day. There could be delivery problems, weak calves, and calves that have not had that first milk, all of which is critical.
You should have seen the boys in the bull pen as the girls passed by. They all came running to the corner of their pasture saying, it must be time, but it wasn't, and they have disappointedly returned to their hay. Sorry I didn't see this event sooner as I missed the picture of the boys. Come back soon, we'll have some pictures of new calves.
