If you're trying to count I'll save you the trouble. We had 120 calf hutches.Not only were we trying to get settled into our new home and get into a comfortable routine. We were also getting a lot of little heifer calves adjusted to their new home. It was a lot of work. My parents decided to come visit us in our new home and were looking forward to meeting their new baby grand-daughter for the first time as well.
They also made plans for my brother Mahlon to stay with us for several months to help with the many things that needed to be done. Like building fences, clearing away all the brush around our buildings and a lot of things that needed fixing up besides all the chores that needed to be done.
I really looked forward to having them come visit. Even though it had only been a little over two months that I had seen them last, it felt more like several years.
Some of the weaned calves that were moved from their calf hutches to one of the pastures.
