Participating in Farm Photo Friday and Farm Friend Friday...check 'um out!!!
|The lil' heifer|
No, she's not a mistake...but her sire is "Goof"...remember Goof from last summer? He spent a lil' bit of "workin' time" here at the ranch?
|The BIG guy...Goof!|
After yesterday's post with the photo of the "Cow Girls waiting"...Annabelle didn't make us wait much longer! My Man found the calf this mornin' when he went down to feed. But I'm suspecting that she actually had her yesterday afternoon.
Last evening at feeding time, Annabelle was really agitated with the dogs, which she usually does when she has a calf by her side. I looked through the sagebrush, but didn't find a calf. They can be pretty hard to see, and Annabelle didn't look like she'd calved, but I had been gone all afternoon into town. So, I think she had it just after I left (noon) and she was all cleaned out by feeding time.

Annabelle is half Jersey, and boy can she produce some milk! This lil' one sure got her Jersey eyes...sooooo cute.
It was cloudy and spittin' snow on us as I tried to take some photos, so they didn't turn out too good. But you know me...there will be more to come!
Happy Friday everyone!
