SHELLY: I've done it! "Mother and baby doing well!"
I'm proud to report that I have produced the first offspring to be born on Fran and Collin's Green Pastures Farm ... and, if you can excuse a motherly view, it's a very special calf too!
I won't go through the details of how it happened ... but it was Fran who "found" my little offspring late today - and let out one of those funny girly squeals humans sometimes do - while I was off having a well-deserved drink. She watched on as the bub struggled to its feet, and stood back as I returned at some speed to where I'd left my bundle of joy. Fran told me she thought I was very clever as she took a few pictures.
