Easter baby

Today, Easter Eve, Chad found a prolapsed very pregnant cow. We called the local vet, Ben Noland, who came up to help. After assessing the situation, he recommended a cesarean section in an attempt to save both calf and cow. Ben and his wife Hallie, also a vet, recently opened the Sage Veterinary Clinic near Baggs, and we are really happy to have them in the community. We have a happy ending, so far.
