Moonie’s Going to Have a Baby: Name the Date!

Moonie, our Nurse Cow

Moonie, our Nurse Cow

As some of you may know, our cow Moonie is soon going to give birth. Mark calls her his “used cow,” because she’s the only cow he owns that he didn’t raise from a young heifer. When we bought her, we were told her due date was sometime in late October, maybe the first part of November. Well, it’s January and she still hasn’t calved!

So, we’re having a Name the Date contest. The grand prize is one gallon of milk, plus a $10 gift certificate to Ludeman’s Farm & Garden Center, which will go to whomever picks the closest time and date.

Post your answers in a comment at the bottom of this page, and let the guessing begin!

Happy guessing, and let’s wish an easy birth for Moonie.

    Renee Wrede: “January 15th, my Mom’s birthday! I would say 7AM.”

  4. Aaaand, we have a winner!

    Moonie’s baby was born at 3pm yesterday afternoon: Tuesday, January 11, 2012. It’s a girl!

    The guess that came the closest was made by Angie Larionov, who guessed January 12th at 7:05am.

    Congratulations Angie, you won! Please write to healingponds@gmail.com to arrange when you’d like to pick up your gallon of milk and redeem your $10 store credit in our farm store.

    Thanks for guessing, everyone! And good work, Moonie!
