My friend, Tonya, over at Clover Hill Farm, Has been waiting for her sweet girl Gertie to calve. Well, Gertie was showing no signs of delivery and she was already past her due date by several days. Gertie has gone over before so no worries, she would calve as soon as she was ready. Tonya had been keeping a close eye on her so she could move her to the pasture behind the barn as soon as she looked “close”. Well, Saturday morning Tonya went out for a bit and when she came home Gertie was “missing”. Tonya hopped on her John Deere Gator to go find her and find her she did…….. along with a little heifer calf, in the creek! Tonya got her hubby, David, and her dad to help her get them out of the creek. David held the calf and rode on the back of Tonya’s dad’s Polaris Ranger. Gertie, being a good cow mommy, followed close behind as they rode up to the pasture behind the barn.
