Good news. The email arrived. Moxie is in calf! Way to go, Pee-Wee!
I could have sent a blood test in for Elsa but that would have required wrestling a halter onto her and calling my friend Alison (a nurse) to draw blood. I’ll just watch Elsa’s figure.
Moxie is older and more fragile and now that I am sure she is pregnant, I know when to wean the calf, Mel Gibson.
Since I didn’t see any breeding, all I can guess is that calving will fall between mid-June and mid-July. I will be glad of the warm weather, especially as it is likely that Moxie will come down with milk fever again. (Always easier to fight a deadly metabolic imbalance when you’re not also fighting sub-zero temperatures!)
