It’s a boy!
The Budds are happy to announce the birth of little Tucaram who was born this morning. Mom, Lani Moo, and baby are doing fine. This is Lani Moo’s first, so she had to learn about standing still when her calf was trying to find the meal faucet, but that seems to have been resolved. This evening we’ll find out if Lani Moo is agreeable to being milked.
We did have to assist this birth and Billy even got out his comealong, which fortunately wasn’t needed. When the calf was out and being “cleaned”, Lani Moo reached over and gave me a lick, too. I think she was thanking us for the help.
Tucaram was named by our friend Karah who speaks a different language. She told us that “Tucar” means strong. This calf is destined to become a strong working ox.
