It was a surprise to wake this morning to find snow on the ground. There wasn’t much and it won’t last long but it is still not quite what we were expecting. Needless to say one of the heifers thought it was the appropriate time to deliver her first calf. Fortunately she did it herself but then need some remedial parenting skills in drying it and getting it to take milk. Hopefully all will be well now.
The change in weather made the pig feed attractive to more than the pigs this morning. There were a number of deer loitering with intent around the feeding place this morning and as you can see they were not put off by my arrival. I stayed long enough to ensure the pigs got a good start but I can image the deer stated to muscle in as soon as my back was turned.
