A first for Locks Park…twin heifer calves!

They are the sweetest things and I found myself treating them more like lambs than calves. Luckily they were eager to suck and happy to be helped with the standing-balancing act which was slightly problematic when all your growing has gone into bone with very little muscling. Gwen started calving at around 5 am and finished by 8 am. She’s a very gentle, sweet and attentive mum after the surprise of finding two babies who needed attention.


And for Mary…the promised pictures of my trusty farm-worker – Bobcat!
