Time goes by awfully fast here on Antelope Hills Ranch. Calving season is here and the thermometer is still dipping down to below zero at night. We have to keep the cows that are ready to calve in the barn at night. In the morning comes the job of cleaning out the barn. A pitch fork, wheel barrow and muscles get the chore done. Then it's time to fork fluffy clean straw into the barn. It's all ready for the next night.

 This is one of our new additions. I named her spot. This heifer is out of a big red cow and will weigh in at over 100 lbs.
 We're hopping for warmer weather. The big herd is starting to calve & we can't get 200 cows in the barn.


  1. Spot is precious! I'm glad my babies were only 8 1/2 lbs and 8 lbs ;-) Sending you warm weather wishes ... although we've had another snow storm here in Va so I'm probably not much help! ha

  2. Awwww...she's just adorable! But I'm worried - you haven't got much warmer weather have you? How many Mama's and Babies do you have squished in the barn now?
