Popular Post Dempsy's Mom Posted April 13, 2017 Popular Post Share Posted April 13, 2017 This morning we had our first calf. Mom is one of our oldest cows - she is 17 yrs old and is still in pretty good shape. I decided to walk them up to the barn because there was a chance of rain. We were all in the gator. Elsie and I were busy concentrating on the task of getting baby and mom up to the barn. Dempsy was the only one who was multi-tasking. Dempsy started barking and I ignored him, at first, thinking that he was helping us. But his barks were aggressive .... like he was really trying to control a situation. I looked at Demps and he had a strong stance in the other direction - tail rapidly wagging, ears perked and eyes deliberate. Dempsy was directing me to "Look over there!!" The rest of the herd was quietly tiptoeing their way to the open gate. So we abandoned our task at hand and sailed across the pasture to stop the old gals from sneaking out. It's funny how you can leave a gate open and it's like a neon sign. So Dempsy saved me some grief and he scolded Elsie and I for not being aware of our surroundings .... and that's why he is Farm Manager. It did rain a bit and it was chilly so it was nice to have mom and baby in the barn. Elsie had to welcome the little girl calf with kisses. 19 Quote Elsie, Max, Meeko & Lori Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
