It’s a girl! “Liz” of the National Colonial Farm and Meadow Brook’s “Gabe” are proud to announce the birth of their daughter, “Bliss”.
Born on December, 20, 2010, Bliss is a very active and healthy calf, and she loves to play chase with the other recent additions to the herd, “Loin” and “Mary Gertrude”. “Lorelei”, “Patty”, and “JuJubee” are big girls now and don’t want to be seen playing with babies. (Though Lorelei was the first member of the herd to come and see the new baby.) Mother Nature was kind enough to grant us a daytime birth so that we can observe and watch the birth–for some staff it was the first time for them to see an animal born. For me, personally, it does not matter how many times I see a birth. It is always magical to watch a new life come into the world. Come down and see our little bit of “Bliss”, as she is growing like a weed!
