We had a successful shipping of the calves yesterday. Well, to the cowgirls and cowboys it was successful. But the cows and calves don’t feel the same. This little guy finished his last breakfast with momma before he was whisked away to be weaned and taken to a new owner. Growing up is tough but it just happens.

We’re going back to check the momma cows and make sure they haven’t jumped the fence looking for their babies.  At least they have new ones in their bellies. I’ll share more on the gather tomorrow.
