Sharlotte is an 83 pound heifer. The tail lift is deceptive- everything looks a little poopy down there, but she definitely has udders and no testicles.
Dorie didn't seem too concerned with us (me and #3) at that point of the examination. When I started opening packages and rustling papers she came in for a closer inspection. I chickened out and didn't tag her. I'll wait for bigger help tonight.
For now mother and baby are out in the pasture enjoying the sunshine. Dorie didn't even hide her from me. Maybe the herd is finally big enough that she feels she needs to keep her baby close. Or maybe she feels like it's big enough that she doesn't need to hide the baby. Either way, it was nice to not have to traipse all over looking for her.
Welcome to the world, Sharlotte!
