Reflections from Red Oak Ranch – April 19

by Jan Fielden On Saturday we had another new calf born. The mother has had a few calves before so she knows what to do…except maybe for this time. After the calf was born she immediately took it to join the herd. Not all cows do that; some will stay with their calf for a few days before taking it to the herd. We saw all of this while sitting in our favorite spot-the front porch. As we were expecting company, we went in to do some last minute things. I walked in and made sure I had the bedrooms totally ready for company. I did and walked down the hall, and looked out the front window and was shocked at what I saw. The herd had moved completely out of the pasture! They were nowhere to be seen.

I mentioned it to The Colonel and he pulled on his boots and said we will have to bring the herd up. He walked outside; I got my boots on and ran outside to jump in the truck with him. It was then we saw our company had arrived. We explained what happened and told them we would...
