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.

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!

Let's Play With Cows!!

Yep, I think it's been almost a month since I last posted! I'm still here...and very busy obviously. It's spring, so there have been numerous brandings, my Mike Bridges horse clinic, last weekend I hosted the Tom Blasdell cow dog clinic for two days and the following day My Man and I went to two small brandings in one day...and it's so dry that we're irrigating the alfalfa between freezing temps...just a bit chaotic!!

Stay tuned in the next few days, I've got a special give-away coming up that you won't want to miss!!

In the meantime, here's a bit of fun from the cow dog clinic with Rastus~
