We had a visitor stay at the farm overnight on Monday. She goes by the name of 564.

I found a calf hiding in the thickets along the road to the west of our farm. I thought it belonged to our neighbor's to the north so I started heading it that way. Then, as we came to the opening in our fence, it took off on a sprint into our farm. This thing was a furry cannonball! I watched as it went through a three wire electric fence into the bull paddock. Then the yearling bull chased it through another fence and then it went through as double wire gate (And broke one of the wires). It finally stopped when it got to the cows and heifers. Our neighbor came over but it wasn't his and there's really no one else nearby with cattle. We found out that a guy was moving cattle and his trailer had come open and this poor thing had fallen out. Apparently it had been out there for 2-3 days. The guy came over on Tuesday, with two other guys, and the four of us tried to catch the calf. None of us could rope to save our lives and we couldn't catch the little squirt. So he called Bruce Sturdy and Bruce came out later that afternoon hopped on his horse and had the thing roped and in the trailer in about fifteen minutes. Come to find out, Bruce's wife is our landlord's niece!
ANYWAY, without further ado

Our guest liked to tag along with our only calf and his momma.

And a random shot of Open Sky, green grass, a little farm pond and happy cows

Hmmm. The pictures are small.I'm sure Jamie won't mind showing me what I did wrong. Hopefully we'll get that fixed later today.
