Comeuppance

Dec
19

This is where Glory Bee stashes Apple Dumpling when she wants some downtime to read her email–in a corner tucked amidst the spilled hay in one of the barn stalls.

Not that she gets much downtime now. Baby’s raring to go. Dumpling is a-scampering, and guess who’s scampering after her?


Ha.

The comeuppance, it comes so soon!




(Notice how Glory Bee has finally had it and tells her, “It’s time for bed!”)

    I can see it now…the only way you are going to have Apple Dumpling for supper is when she is seated in the place of honor…with a bib around her pretty neck!!!!
    BTW…GB is going to be one of those overly protective moms.

    I love these videos!! It reminds me of growing up on a farm, you are so lucky to have your own calf!

    How cute is that! I loved seeing GB running after her kid! She’s going to get lots of exercise now.

    That is a cute video. Our cows aren’t quite so protective – usually. LOL They do stash the babies away pretty good though. Ours are Black Angus/Limousine and can hide in dark places so well. Thanks for the smile this morning.

    That was fun to watch. I can see how it is hard to tear yourself away from wanting to watch baby.
    Good stuff!

    That is too stinking cute! Makes me long for a cow now :-) And Glory Bee looks to be a wonderful mama!

    Hee-hee…..At one point in the baby chasing, it looks like GB is saying “Don’t just stand there, Suzanne, DO SOMETHING!”

    So cute!! I love to watch the young calves running and seeing the protective mother following them. Fun for us, but probably stressful for the mother cows, but way better than T. V.

    Glory Bee needs to take a closer look at the babysitting flyers that Coco and Chloe put up in the barn. :)

    Bonding has gone well. GB won’t be so concerned by the time she’s had her 3rd calf. She will let the calf run circles around her and not bother to chase after. I take it BP is refusing to babysit?

    What a great way to start the day , such a beautiful sight , wish that was my view from the porch ! Brings back memories of my Grandparents farm which I cherish deeply. When you see that baby does your heart flutter ? I can almost see you smiling from ear to ear ! GB looks like a great mom & Dumpling…..precious !

    Now that is just too funny! GB is just like a first time momma. She’ll have that baby fat run off in no time! Keep the videos coming please!! I need some good laughs right now. I think we can all use this. Thanks!

    that was fun to watch!, I guess what goes around comes around, haha! She looks like a little Deer running around.

    She’ll lose the “baby weight” in no time, chasing that one! What a charmer!

    Suzanne I’d love to see some of the old videos (assuming there were some!) of GB and BP when GB was new. I loved watching her run around with her baby :) Such a sweet sweet sight. They remind me of big giant dogs, full of love for life and adventure and fun. Yay!

    Glory Bee’s calf is so cute. It was so much fun to see the calf running around and Glory Be chasing after her; I didn’t know that grown cows could run so much!

    THe calf, “Apple Dumpling” has so much energy, wow she does look like a little doe running around.

    Thanks for sharing a video with us, we really enjoy a glimpse of farm life!

    you have a great protective momma there. She may even take the dogs if they get too close. That baby is a pretty good sized girl. She will be fun!

    I nominate Glory Bee for “Hover Momma” of the year!

    Oh, there is absolutely NOTHING that is cuter than a newborn calf discovering that it can RUN!! Like they say, “ain’t payback a b*tch”?

    Suzanne I took a look at “Baby Cow the Movie” after watching Dumpling run rings around GB. I think I was struck most by how DIFFICULT it was to have cows at Stringtown Rising. Instead of a nice flat field next to a barn, you had to raise GB amid hills, tree roots, and lots of big stones. How much nicer for a baby cow to run safely around behind your new fences in your new pastures. Its going to be so much easier to get GB used to milking, handle the milk and take care of the animals in the snow, sleet, mud. So happy for you in your new farm. :happyflower:

    So stinkin’ cute. I have a friend who raises calves. She always talks about how they have “monkey tails” at this age.

    Glory Bee has lost that stubborn, willful look to her eye. It’s been replaced with “OMG..how did this happen?”.

    It looks almost like she is enjoying having a playmate. Almost.
    Seeing the red tie bar reminds me, please don’t forget to get a halter on her sooner rather than later. :)

    What a charmer! GB looks like she is having fun, but I can also see she is herding her away from the gates (where I guess the dogs and goats are behind?). Lovely video and baby:)

    My baby goat was killed last night by stray dogs so this morning was gruesome and sad for me. I just now had time to come see CITR and find this precious video. Thank you for putting a smile on my utterly crappy day.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
