Born Yesterday

One down, one to go! Connie had her calf last night (on her own birthday!) with a breezy three hours of labour. The calf was raring to go and was up drinking within an hour. His name is Septimus. Don't ask me why.

Here he is this morning.

I gave him his vitamin shots this morning (ouch), a one-time thing for calves. Tomorrow I'll put in his ear tags. As Corb Lund says, "Welcome to the world, little buddy."


  1. Septimus is so sweet. He almost shared the same birthday as our new Grandson, Cameron. Cameron decided to be an April Fool's baby. I think it will be a while yet before Cameron is standing though!
