Dorie and Mindy are starting to wander. I don't know where they think they're going, since we're still a long ways from fresh spring grass.
Dorie may be looking for a 'spot'. I'm still hoping she'll keep that calf in for another month or so. Her back side has been red and swollen for about a week now, and her udders appear to be bagging up. It could be any time now. She went to the neighbour's last June and spent the summer. The neighbour has already had one calf born and lost this year. With all of our bad luck so far, I'm really hoping we'll have an easy, no issue delivery here.
