Well my cattle was on walkabout for a week...
A bit long for them ... I did walk last Sunday to check on them...
And they where in 1 piece at the time...

But I had a feeling why they were taking so long to get back home!!

Well the cattle came home ... I saw them on the hill side this morning..
This is why they took so long to come back home....
They had to wait till the new born could toddle for 5 miles up and down the mountains!! Gosh I love my Longhorns!!!



This is momma and the baby




It's a heifer!!! She is white with a few liver spots...



We have 1 cow that has to calve yet...
Life on the farm !!!

She is a Longhorn / Charolais cross...

Yes it was nice to have a healthy baby after the stillborn last month...
The family is really happy too.. They all look after her...
Can you imagine how hard it must have been for them to push that baby up and down the mountains,traveling with a toddler..

It's amazing how devastated they all where about the stillborn...

Awwww what a beautiful little baby.


Life on a farm is tough... having to walk 5 miles when you are just days old.

Once again we have just increased the herd...The last baby was born today.
And let me tell you it was a good day to be born.. 61* and sunny!!

Last night at feeding time I was looking at Lefty and said to HB .. I say with in 24 hours ... Well this morning late.. Lefty had her baby!!

No help from us .. I love Longhorns/Corrientes... They have small babies ...
The way mother nature had intended them to do...

Lefty is a Corriente...So this baby is Corriente/Charolais cross..
Yes our cattle are in good order.. (good weight)

She loves her baby!!



Yes it looks all bent up still.. Well it's only an hour old...And still has to unfold..
That takes a few days...



You can see in an hours time of being forced through the birth canal.They are up..



And know where and how food is served!!



She will be the size of her mom one day!!! She's a cool colour ..
A nice Mocha...Yuppers she's a good mom..



. The herd, this evening all sniffed her and licked her ...
It's really cool to watch them as a family unit...

I even watched Tuco our Longhorn/Holstein (the Black cow) Clean the white calf the other day...I thought that's cool... After all she is also her Oldest sister.. For real.... See Tuco is/was Cisco's 2nd Calf that was born here on the farm.

Yuppers they are one big happy family

And I did get my bike out today... Felt good to ride and such a grand day!!

The poor thing is getting cold rain pouring on her today..
At least she can drink some warm milk..
And that will warm her right back up

It's a blessing when they are good moms

Yesterday it was cold, cloudy, and icy here. You sure were lucky to get 61 and sunny. Raining here now too... and chilly... I love wood stoves

We're gonna come see you guys if you'll have us

Spring time means .. Time to go Hunting !!!

Yuppers it's that time of year once again...
A hunting we will go.... Yes I said hunting...
And what fur ya ask ???
Why Shrooms what else !!!!

The elusive Morel ..
We do this right in the back yard for real....
And in 20 min this is what we caught...



Morels !!! Aka Fish of the woods...

We ran to the store and picked up some local trout...
So tonight we will feast on Morels and trout with some kind of greens..
Ah the spring tonic....

I did a little more hunting and found some Black morels !! They are a real treat... Don't grow in the same area as the Grays and Tans... And much smaller The Morel is one of the easiest to identify..
There is a poisonous variety .. But they are chambered on the inside just like the outside... The Good ones are nice and smooth inside and hollow ....

They come up after big rains and a good warm up... We should get another crop in the next few weeks if the weather keeps up ...

Also what I trim off the Morels I will toss back in the woods...Plus we use a mesh sack ,and leave the roots...Just how we do it ...




Here was tonight's supper...

Edamame and Collards..



Saute' and sweat down the Morels..



Added some spinach ...



Trout encrusted with Flax seed and meal with Quinoa..



Ooo trout is ready



Highbinder's plate..I shell the soy beans for him



My plate...I like to just pop the beans right in me mouth



Oh man I'm stuffed... In a good way....

Yeah yeah I know I have rr to put up...
I never got to my retrospect RR's .. I will One of these days...
And now with the season upon us .. I have a rr from this past weekend...

I'll try to get that done in the next few days....

The first camp out of the year…. The Party Boss tm ….
Wanted to camp after the long hard winter.. So a bunch of us said where and when…
The second weekend in April it is !!! The Place.. at our good friends place “WillVille”
The motorcycle camp ground in Meadows of Dan, Va.…Just off the BRP…
A great place .... With a nice creek....

Highbinder & I head out after chores…We stopped at our favorite Chinese restaurant in Hillsville… Then we are only a hope skip and a just from Will’s ….

We pulled in a little after noon… only 1 tent Kyle’s ….
So we unpack


HB’s bike all unpacked ..


Then it off to the Poor Farmers Market ,just to see if there is anything I just got to have ..
I did pick up a little something for my sister .Who had just lost her dog….



There’s me honey…. He had injured his shoulder a few weeks back…
So we really didn’t know how it would be camping… But he was game to give it a go…



The campground started to fill up…





FreakingRT showed up !!! And staked his claim to a spot..



Folks just hanging around at Will’s



Will was havig some Cookies and cream icecream…HB was wondering why he didn't offer any to all of us.. Just kidding…..



We brought 2 kinds of Chili with us for supper…. Others went up the road to eat…
Hey we are to be camping … Not sleeping outside and eating out…Oh well what ever…



257Bob rolls in ... I stoll this pix from KnyBanjo .. We shared our meal with him ….



I had baked the night before , and shared some of the Banana nut rum bread that I made..


Will had the bonfire going … Photo taken by HappyRiding....


Sat around told a few tales …Then we went to the tent for the night.. At first it was just rain and a few claps of thunder, no big deal ..
Then the lighting was all crazy colours and the thunder was just about simultaneously



You can’t really see it but I was really worried… As the hail started to fall big time…
All I could think ,was my bike is uncovered !!! I sure hope it’s not big hail pellets…



Thanks to Gaston Gagne here’s a pix of the Hail….



Saturday morning while most went for a ride to our neck of the woods …
HB & I packed up …Had things to do on the farm.. We didn’t have anyone to watch and feed the stock for this trip ….



Shoving/stuffing our sleeping bag in the wheel wells…



TheBlack is just about loaded…



On our way home we stopped at the other Va.Farmers Market .. To pick up some honey ..
I was getting low…. We looked for the group ride .. But they had left a good 2 hours in front of us… By the time we ate and shopped… We got home just in time .around 1:15 The skies opened up once more… We had hoped that the group had changed there route , as the rains had been really heavy…. Didn’t see them heading up rt 614…

Sorry I didn’t take anymore pix… With the odd weather the camera seamed to stay out of sight….
Had a blast … It was good to see a few people that we knew…
And to met a few new ones …Plus put a face to a few names….

Yuppers it was a good Friday/Saturday…





Saturday night our buddy calls us and said… It’s got to be to wet for ya to do your work
So why don’t you both meet us at the Snake!!!!
Part two….. To be continued…
