Congratulations to Number Three!

She FINALLY calved!!!

You did a fine job girl...she had this cute lil' one all by herself! It's interesting that this calf came out with the Jersey color tone instead of the red Hereford like the other two calves. But, she was a nice small calf...perfect for Number Three's first calf.

Newborn Heifer Calf
She's just a cutie!

Her breeding is a bit of a conglomeration; half polled Hereford, quarter Chiangus, eighth Angus and eighth Jersey.


Newborn Heifer Calf
I guess this position gives her more stability as Number Three continues to clean her up.

It sure doesn't take them long to get up and rompin' around! This is a pretty cute video!





So, we're done calving for this year. We'll be getting the bull in fairly soon...and expect to have five calves next year!

Very cute, I love a black white face, although cant convince the hubby so we have red and red white faces.

Mary said...

That was really cute. It's amazing how they get up and romp around so soon after birth. I know they have to, I just think it's really something! Her/his? little stumble and fall was priceless.

That's a very fine calf. Love the markings on her face. My guys are all black. Boring!

Just popped by, trying to catch up on all the blogs I`ve been missing!

She is a cutie. My husband and I would like to get a calf. We are looking at a Dexter calf about 14 weeks old but not hand tame. Is if very difficult to hand tame a cow that old.
