We had a date like that yesterday. We were crammed together hip to hip, shoulder to shoulder, feet to feet. But that's because we picked up a 90-pound hitchhiker.
It was a tight fit.
help with the birth.
This baby was born in the pasture south of our house. It was 0 degrees, with a wind chill of -15 to -20. So, Randy wrapped it up in an old blanket and put it on the floor of the pickup to dry it off and warm it up. We also mixed up a little milk replacer to get something warm in its belly.
"All that work, all that lifting, and she takes it to the snow," he lamented.
But, when we went back later in the afternoon, she'd led the baby back to the hay.
