Then, with some mooing, grunting and pushing, 2 little hooves appeared about 7:05 pm.
Then for 25 minutes only the two hooves were seen and sticking out while Jersey Girl pushed and heaved and pushed to no avail. She kept looking at us like, "help me you people as you stand here gawking at me"!!!
So, the Gentle Giant, in his tender way, helped Jersey girl push here heifer calf out. The head was definitely stuck it seemed. I was a nervous wreck as you can hear.
And then at about 7:30 p.m. "she" emerged onto our farm in her warm and wet cocoon onto some fresh straw. All the children were so excited to see this miracle of life transform before their very little eyes! The Great Him exclaims, "THAT'S MY HEIFER"!
The minute Jersey Girl delivered, she quickly pushed us out of the box stall and is a very wonderful and protective mama to her baby.
Yesterday was a perfect day and we all finished with a homemade supper, together in the peace and quiet with an oil lamp and thanked the Lord for a wonderful day. Just 1 day every now and then like this makes this life we live even more worth it! I am so thankful that we can experience life on a farm...
