This morning they were reunited in the barn. As soon as Jody saw her baby, milk started streaming from all four quarters. I shoved the calf around to the cow's left side, put the kicker on Jody on the right side, and milked her two front teats (much bigger and easier to milk than the back ones) with no problems. Jenny seemed to prefer sucking on the back teats, so she and I are going to get along great.

This would be a great time to put Jody and the calf up for sale. A just-freshened heifer with a heifer calf would probably sell pretty easily... but I can't bring myself to part with these two. Not yet, anyway.
