October has flown by. It felt like most of it was spent in the truck while towing Dexters around the country side. Winter has shown it's face a few times. We had about 4 inches of snow yesterday but it was gone by early afternoon.
We made the drive to Billings, Montana to show at the N.I.L.E. A few heifers were delivered to new homes along the way. No new ones came home with us!
We cruised on home grateful that we were east of the Big Horns! While we were gone, Wrencesky finally decided to give birth:
We know from past experience that Wrencesky does not gladly allow us near her calves. She's one of our meek and mild cows most of the year, but she's an overprotective momma for the first few weeks after delivery. Ms. Meek and Mild lets us know, in no uncertain terms, that we are not to approach. Two and a half weeks later, we can now visit her little heifer at will.
