The Two Cow Ranch~Fall Update

~There was a time in my life when I would have given anything for a man.~
~Jeannie Tandy 1900~


Remember way back in the spring...

First came lil' Brown Calf...



EllieMae & Black Calf
...then came lil' Black Calf.


After a long summer of good grazing and mothers milk...


Black Calf & Brown Calf
They're not lil' anymore!


Brown Calf isn't very brown anymore either. The two boys are being weaned and eating lots of our lovely alfalfa. They will soon be going to the Vale Producers Livestock sale...such is life for calves. It's pretty safe to say, we survived our first year in the cow business...even if it was only two cows!

We're definitely lookin' forward to Goof's calves this comin' spring...and doin' it all over again!!!

Cute buggers. That black calf sure looks like his knees don't fit him when hes that young.

If they had been heifers, would you now have more than a two-cow herd?

Cheyenne said...

Well done you! two cows, still each journey starts with a single step!

The cow count is just right,
one for you and one for your cowboy.
Love the new look of your site.

Love the new header! Two moo ranch can still lead you to four moo or more ;)

Are you sure someone didn't swipe your brown baby?
