Farm Journal: Mon Dieu, We Have a Buffalo Calf!

First day of life

An article on Kate appeared in the Kalamazoo Gazette on Saturday, March 19.

Meet Kate, the newest addition to Windshadow Farm and the daughter of M-131.

She was born on the Ides of March.

Suzanne was at the water buffalo side of the barn looking over the animals when she suddenly noticed a calf in the middle of them all.

We were expecting buff births around June and July so this was a big, big surprise.

Mother and child seem to be doing well and the other buffs are accepting the new bundle of joy.  I will go to the farm tomorrow, take more photos and find out more about who this new Kate the Buff Calf is.

Life is truly like a box of chocolates.  You never know what you're going to get!
