Two bottle bums are now on cows, one is bonded up really well and out with a small group of pairs, the other is still boding in a large stall barn (she was on a bottle the longest, so might take a little longer to get the hang of going to a cow for milk).  The third may end up staying a bottle bum, as he's a bit stiff legged, so doesn't move as easily as the others and would likely have trouble keeping up with the herd on pasture; although, now that I've bought another bag of milk replacer and a bag of calf started, we very well might get him a cow mom. 

Thank you for the compliments, Renee on the quilts, I appreciate it.   I have more, even a couple from this quilting season, so might post a couple more pics.
The top is done for this kitty quilt, but still need to quilt it.  Working on a quilt for my sister for her birthday, no pics, yet.  The handprint quilt was made for our postal worker, she's young and obviously a new mom, since it's a baby quilt (she loves it).  And, a pile of tablerunners I made for Christmas gifts a few years ago.

oh wow, each time I see a new one I fall in love. How long does it take you to make a single bed one? You seem to have a never ending collection, I imagine umpa lumpas working away in your sewing room. lol

I rarely make larger than lap size, don't have the room to quilt bigger, nor the patience.   How long it takes me depends on how much spare time I have (so usually, how crappy our winter is) and how motivated I am; this year, I was really into quilting, so really got a lot accomplished.  I did 2 quilts in time for Christmas for Diane's grands (these were started last spring, then put aside for the summer and picked up again in the fall), 3 quilts by mid-March for another gal, a second red/black floral quilt, the handprint baby quilt before the end of March, and I have a good start on the kitty quilt, the horse quilt and my sister's birthday quilt, also made my sister a table topper out of the extra blocks from her lap quilt.  I think that cover this quilting season (aka: winter and "foaling season").   Some years I'm not the least bit motivated, and might only make one quilt that is started as a project for quilt guild.

I changed my avatar to Merlin and Alby as my boy looked too similar to Holly's boy.

Nothing new going on at the moment.   It's been rainy and wet for 3-4 days, so that interrupted my corral cleaning; will get back to corral cleaning tomorrow, and then I can open the gate to the clean pen, so the girls can come and go during the day, and I'm thinking Bonny can stay in at night, since I'm thinking she'll be the first to pop, but they'll probably switch it up on me.

If you get some time in the next week or so, how about posting a few pictures of these girls AND the "long eared" wonder girl!!  I remember her as a little one -- she was so cute!!

I suppose I can take new pictures, if I have to.  Some are mostly shed out, some are still scruffy.

I woke them from their afternoon nap, so excuse the bed head and odd stances; but here are a few pictures of the girls from today.
Single pics of Showy (sorrel), Misty (silver dapple) and Tana (silver bay dun):

3 pics of Bonny.  Not easy to get an udder shot, and what is there is firm with two definite halves (deep crease between the halves).

Almost forgot, I got a candid shot of Topper, too.  Not overly flattering, as I leaned over the fence and looked down the fence line at him.
