Home with a sore back

I have been home for almost one week with a painful back, possibly related to shearing 25 sheep.  I am trying to be good to allow it to heal which means no farm chores.  So  I’ve been occupying my time with readying, knitting, blogging, but also peaking out the window to check on our obviously pregnant Highland cow Hana who was supposedly due in March.  Finally last evening she produce a calf for us (but I missed the delivery yet again!).  Once again we cannot get close enough to see if it’s a bull or heifer calf but she/he is doing well- dry, standing and nursing.  I may try to go out to the field today with binoculars to take a look- we need to pick a name!
