Call the Bull, Pa!

Jun
9


BP came up for her morning feed early today. After she’d eaten and everything, instead of disappearing back to the hinterlands, she stayed up at the gate. Bawling. Angry mooing. For like two hours. I thought, wow, she sure is being mean today. Then–lightbulb!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I had forgotten to even check her today. So I grabbed my chore boots and ran out there.

When she opens up a little bit (like when she starts to moo) she looks like this now. You can see from the video here that she didn’t look all red and swollen like that before. I don’t see any clear discharge, but she’s all poo-ey back there, so maybe I just can’t tell. I think she’s in heat!!! Probably just the early stage, so maybe that’s why I can’t see a discharge yet.

We’re taking her to the bull!!! Will update when I can!! BP’s going through her dresses, tossing clothes left and right, trying to decide what to wear. She thinks she looks fat in everything. I have to go help her!

    Suzanne, hilarious. BP was sending out her come hither call. CATRAY44 said it best. Just a day in the country.

    Yep, she’s getting close. Congrats, Ms. BP ;)

    Bull won’t care what she’s wearing, or if she looks fat. Heck, he won’t care that her legs are hairy. But he sure is going to be delighted to, um, take her on a date…

    Give him a memory he’ll never forget, Beulah Petunia! And make a pretty baby while you’re at it. :heart:

    Hee, hee . . . think maybe she should fix him a candle-lit dinner? A little alfalfa pie? I understand the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach . . . er, in his case, stomachs!

    BP girl, you aint fat! Don’t worry the bull will love you even if you are an older more experienced gal.

    What breed is the bull?

    Hurry, cows are only in standing heat and at peak fertility for about 12 hours. If she doesn’t take this time you’ll have to haul her to the bull all over again in 21 days. That is a real pain to do multiple time. So I hope you make it in time and everything works out. With a June 9th breeding the calf should be due March 18th. May you have abundant summer milk in 2012! IF BP has a bull calf this time you may even be raising your own beef on the farm too.

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....
