The very next day we were all busy about with jobs. I sent Benaiah out to take some food garbage to chickens when he came back in and said, "Uh, Dad, I think Iris has a baby out there". Our first reaction was to ask him if he was telling the truth. Rosie and Iris look similar but that boy knows his animals and keeps good track of the farm right alongside his dad. Then Josiah said that he thought he saw one too. We scurried around getting boots on and headed out to the field. Sure enough, a sweet little bundle lay out there next to her mama, Iris.
We missed it by a short bit because after birth was still hanging out and there was still a lot of cleaning that needed done. Iris sure did a great job and took care of her new baby. Iris was the one who was always nannying the other calves when they were born, not wanting to leave them by themselves in the field when their mama's would go up to the barn. She has been such a great mom, staying right close to her precious, white faced babe. Since the other white faced calf was named Eclipse I guess the children decided to go with sky names and named this one Moonlight.
