March is coming though, and with March will come sleepless nights, mucky corrals, plenty of wet chore clothes and somewhere around 650 new little faces on the ranch. Calving season is nearly upon us! Although we can get some pretty severe weather in March, these momma cows keep us so busy and sleep deprived that before we know it, spring is in the air and the green grass is showing.
This year, along with the calves, Cheyenne is due with our very first (long awaited) William baby. Cheyenne is pictured above in the none to flattering snapshot I took of her a couple weeks ago. As you can see, she is "over it", and is just as excited for this baby to be on the ground as we are. We've brought her back from my folks' place so we can keep an eye on her right along with the mother cows. She is not due until the beginning of April, but we are already brimming with excitement! I will be sure to keep you all posted- and I must forewarn- you will be inundated with pictures!
