The vet arrived to see my beautiful Glory Bee yesterday afternoon with a vet tech in training.
She was just here to watch. And who doesn’t want to watch? It’s so exciting!
Look how the man actually looks happy to be sticking his arm inside my cow.
And he said, “Oh, there’s a BIG calf in there!”
I’d gotten worried she wasn’t bred because she was bawling a few weeks ago, like she could be in heat. I had to know for sure! The vet said she was four to five months along, and to start watching her in late February–but probably it will be a March baby. Which is perfect! Just what I was planning when I timed the bull here.
And no wonder Glory Bee was starting to get in a bad mood a few weeks ago. Pregnant all this time, and nobody was giving her any pickles!!!
