Midnight visits

Its now 5.30am and I have just returned from the twice nightly inspection of Phoebe who is expecting her first calf.  The firsts are always a worry as the the young heifers seem a bit confused as to what to do with the wet bundle that suddenly appeared amongst all the pain.  Some take to their new babe licking and making motherly noises at the same time.  Others retreat to the corner wonder what they should do next….generally speaking as a native breed, Dexters do just fine.  Even so, the twice nightly visits will continue…

Ive just come in and made a pot of tea…woken himself up who will do the next visit….Phoebe back in the summer  Image
