We’ve got cow pies around here, plopping like they’re going out of style. The fortunate thing is, they don’t stink.
Here’s the newest. He was born yesterday at around 11:15 am or so. I wasn’t home at the moment but found him and his mama, Mattilda, around 11:30 am and he was still pretty fresh. Mama was standing by that time and cleaning him up. She chose a nice little nook in the pature, surrounded by pines. Yes, he’s a bull calf and I’m fairly relieved because if he was a heiffer, we’d probably wind up keeping it. So… This one’s for the freezer or possibly a 4H or FFA project. We’ll see if we have any buyers.
Of course, I had to get the camera and take pictures of Annie and her new calf. Poor kid.
Can you believe my mom set me down here with these things?! I’m as big as this mama’s head!
Mattilda and babe are doing well, are healthy, and baby is catching lots of zzzz’s just like a good newborn should. The only trouble is, I thought of Stew but can’t think of a name for this guy. Since he’ll be a steer, we’d prefer cuts of meat or beef / food related items (this way you don’t get as attached and are reminded he’s for eating!)… T-Bone was already taken, same with Chuck. Any thoughts?
