Wow!!! how time is just flying by, i can't believe we are in the middle of April already, and it has been over a month since i have been on here to blog and catch up with all the homesteading happenings from my fellow bloggers. I miss reading of all of your happenings and inspirations, but sometimes LIFE just demands things from us, and I choose to blog when i have the time and to make sure the family needs are taken care of.
The babies are growing fast:
|Rosie, Jolie & Pepe|
|Jessie 13 months old (grandbaby)|
|Oreo & Maggie|
|merrybelle & Jezebel|
We had another calf born yesterday morning to our black cross bred cow we raised and bottle fed. We assumed she was pregnant and due to deliver around the same time as Merry Belle, back in February, but for some reason she fell behind. Her traits are not that desirable, so needless to say, she will be the first to be culled from the heard. We are pretty sure she gave us yet another heifer to add to our growing heard.

The past few weeks we have been working on getting the garden planted, and things are off to a good start, pictures and more blogging on that later. I just wanted to give you a quick peek at the growing babies. Hope you are having a wonderful spring on your homestead.
