Soo excited, both our Shetland cows are in calf.
After watching carefully for signs of bulling we AI'd them in July with semen from Hengae Fearsome,(deceased) not really expecting it to work, (but hoping it would,) as we had been warned that AI can be a slightly hit and miss affair!
Anyway we are looking forward to hearing the patter of tiny hooves in April.
Just thought I would share my news!    :excited:

Brilliant well done. :thumbsup:

We had our Red Poll Ai'd twice and are hoping the second time she has taken but we are waiting in case we missed the next time she was bulling.  :fc:
So many ideas, not enough hours
