Whitey is due to calve any day now. I told my son I want to see it. The calf not the birth. It is a shaggy. It should be cute but it could be for meat. Shorty is for meat and he is not too big yet. Son will take me out to see it.
Whitey had her calf the 17th right after lunch. Her first and she did all the right things they said. Time they got me there it was all over and it had went and layed down to rest. I had gone out walking. But the pictures it is really cute shaggy. It is brown and mama is very protective that day. Its name will be Paddy or Patty depending on the variety it is. It is a really cut little devil. MIL is a proud new mama. Shorty is a calf she is raising for meat and he is bigger and long ways yet to be meat yet. I took the proud new mama (MIL) a box of chocolates. All I had I could think to take here. They had to put Shorty adn theother two cows in another pen while she had it. Another cow willhave a calf this summer.
I was brought up that things their time came to be eaten. Never could afford veal. I think I had veal at the ski resort that time. We had to eat what they fixed us. Workshop. I had lamb twice. Dad was given a leg for us. We ate it and Mom had said he would not eat sheep. He did and glad to get it. I bought lamb chops for me one time to see. I have a couple # of ground lamb in the freezer. I need the recipe to make it up in to Samosas. Filled dumpling. But recipe and cutter is still down there. I want to try some of the ethinic recipes for pasta stuff. They are all down there. I copied off stuff from Russian and Polish ones. Be meat stretchers and I think good. I need to get my pasta equipment up here.
Whitey is a very nice cow, I told her merry Xmas last night. All the cows and claves are very shaggy now. Winter coats. Patted a chicken. Apparently they are not laying much. Heavy ones. Very nice looking. Son had to sure they were in and close it it. MIL is in Denver for Xmas. Son said last night had to get all the last snow plowed before this one hit. The shop, the RV's party and storage unit cleared and not sure how many renters he plows out. He has to plow down at his job. And the compressure station too no doubt. Helper boy shovels snow for DIL. I know the one renter has a to have help on her snow. She may have some family to help her. No idea how muc snow we are predicted to get. Just says snow showers. This is storm I guess coming in from CA.

Been going to see Whitey cow on Sunday evening when he goes to feed. He could not go feed for a while this winter due to back surgery. He is feeding again. Whitey cow comes and wants a treats so bad. She does not moo at me for one but she will at my son if he does not hurry up with the treats (cubes) he gives them.
