Once upon a time a blue moon ago I worked in a hospital and it was well known that full moons brought out the babies.
Just before dark yesterday afternoon I had a Dexter in labor. I could see and watch her from the window in my office, and then I went out to put out hay and before I got outside the baby was on the ground! All was well, and baby was dried and up and eating just as dark settled in. ( It was 18 degrees at 7:00 this AM). AND. . .. . . . I went to take a picture of a new and tiny Legacy chondro heifer ( RARE), and in the same area a mini donkey was drying off a new baby. Nature is confusing the animals! Donkeys and horses are not supposed to have babies in the midst of winter! I was not expecting that foal at all! I never did get a decent photo of the heifer. She was full of energy and dashing here and there!
I've heard the same about full moons and babies. What good luck that your mama Dexter had her calf uneventfully. It's good that the calf is so frisky, but sooner or later you'll have to pull tail hairs.
