Waiting Mode

Sep

Well, no baby yet!

In fact, Beulah Petunia seems pretty unconcerned.

But me and the boys? (Eclipse, at the fence.)

We are pretty pumped up! This is the most exciting thing that’s happened since Clover had her babies. Or since Poky came to town. Or since the chickens started laying eggs!

Maybe we are a little excitable around here.

If you want to make guesses here between now and the end of time about when BP is going to have her calf, I will send a BBB to the winner with the closest guess. (Date and time of the winning guess will be the date and time I discover the calf, as I may not know or be present at the birth!)

NOTE: I just posted a bunch of photos of BP yesterday here, from all the handy angles. Sorry, I assumed you all had seen that! If you’ve already guessed and hadn’t seen the photos in that post, you can change your guess if you want!

    Hmmm looked at your post from Aug 28th, her bag wasnt ready then, and since there is no picture from that view here I cant tell on todays post, not a good enough pic to make a good guess. I have Angus and can make a pretty good guess with them but my first Jersey calf will be born this spring, and they are built different so here goes my guess on your beautiful Dairy Cow Petunia!!!!! Sept 22 5:00am (if I win I’ll tell ya WHY I picked this date!!!) :cowsleep:

    Have to put in for September 27 at 1:36 am but you won’t find it until 7:30am when you notice that that sheep is out again and go wandering the barn yard in your fuzzy slippers.

    Or,better yet, what time does Morgan’s bus come? Right about then so she’ll be late and you’ll have to choose between driving her to the bus or helping BP.

    I’m guessing Sept 24th is when you will find the calf, ’cause I think she will have it late the 23rd with the full moon – don’t ask me why, I’m just guessing and the full moon seems right!!

    Im guessing sept 28 at 1pm. I always found mine after they had them. One time I had a neighbor come by and say did you know you have a newborn alpaca in your front field? and I had just checked on her an hour before.

    Our last boys were named Chuck and Roast and now we have t-bone the last bull calf.
