Our barn has a color! They also put on a wall, forms for the cement curb, and a window.
I went out to the pasture again tonight. A heifer was trying to have a calf. Kris brought her in the barn and pulled it, but the calf was dead. He said it was just a really huge calf. It's always a disappointing way to end a night, even after a generally good day.
On a positive note, three healthy calves were born today - with no assistance. Soon they'll have a new home in a big, red barn!
