Several people have asked about our recent arrival.  Since Lexie had health issues around calving the last few times I didn’t post a big birth announcement.  It is terribly awkward to have to say to people, “The calf is doing great.  The cow is trying to die though!”  Sort of a conversation killer.  Fortunately this time she came through birth and transition with flying colors and is milking up a storm.  Heifer calf Persi (short for Persied – as the meteor showers were happening the night she was born) is getting fat and sassy and all is well with the world.

Without further ado:

Sambo’s Dazzling Alexis and her relatively adoring family are delighted to announce the birth of Princess Persied on August 12, 2013 at 6:30 am (or thereabouts as I missed the actual delivery this time).  Mother and baby calf are doing very well indeed.
