    Good Morning,
    I am not quite sure how I found this message board about a week ago, but have really liked it and have learned a lot since, and so "comfy" feeling. So, decided it was time to join.
    I started quilting 4 years ago (though I learned to sew when I was 8-18 while in 4-H) I find Quilting the ultimate relaxation and so much funner then clothes sewing (though I still make western shirts for the hubby and sons). I really like doing paperpiecing too.
    This past February we made the big purchase of a longarm, since then I have been having a blast learning it and "playing" with it. I also enjoy bottle calves, flowers, archery, gardening and many more things to numerous to mention.....
    I am so excited to be apart of this group.

    Bottle Calves are baby calves that have lost their mother for one reason or another and are fed with a 2 quart size bottle. At the present I have 2, I had 3 but had a cow that lost her calf and was able to graph (get her to accept/adopt) #3.
    One I have was a twin calf (105 pounds)and due to complications at birth he was unable to walk and could not get up to nurse as normal. So I brought him home, got him to take the bottle and put braces on his front legs. He is now three weeks old, no longer has braces and is doing wonderful! The other one I have was one that the mother gave birth and the next day she was found dead, leaving the calf an orphan. She is also doing super! Hope that answers what bottle calves are, and isn't to lengthy.

    Wow that's great! It sounds like a lot of work but sooo rewarding. Thanks for the answer! My boss used to do kitten rescues and bottle feed 'em every 2 hours. I'm glad your calves are doing so well now.

    Judy, Welcome from down under... Nebraska! Looks like we have alot in common. I too learned to sew in my 10 years in 4-H. I always tell everyone I learned by peer pressure.
    I had a home ec teacher for a leader, and her daughter was an excellent sewer. I am so glad I learned now, but back then I wasn't as excited. I got to help with lambs when my daughter wanted to do big animals her last 2 years of 4-H. We live in town, but we pulled that one off! I am a horticulturist and arborist, love to swim and garden and take photos. Sure glad that you joined us!
