This morning we discovered our first calf of the year, born in the night. It’s a girl! Her name is Charlotte and let’s hope she’s the first of many, although we suspect she may be a lucky ‘hit’ on Ferdinand’s part. Having said that, the vet checked over another cow this morning and predicted she’s about five/six months pregnant so he was still ‘functioning’ as late as June/July although obviously not fully functioning otherwise we’d be seeing more calves than we have so far. It’s a start though.
