A Name Has Been Chosen

Well, I’ve finally decided on a name!  Hurray, my little heifer calf no longer has to be “Heifer Calf” — how boring is that?


With a little face like this, she desperately needs a good name and I was fresh out when she was born.  Thankfully I had the thought to call on all of you and got some excellent suggestions:

  1. June
  2. Mae
  3. Mitzi
  4. Olivia
  5. Mooreen (Maureen)
  6. Llewella or Llewellen (<3 those!)
  7. Rosalie
  8. Essie
  9. Ethel
  10. Mildred
  11. Cassey, Bessy, Flossy (<3 this!), Petunia
  12. Esmerelda or Euphemia (never heard of the latter — great!)
  13. Matilida (my favorite cow is Mattilda!)
  14. Layanni
  15. Milicent

I seriously loved all of these — you all really had some great ones!  I almost went with the hilarious Mooreen as it is so fitting to the cow but finally chose Dianne’s Layanni because as she said, it is a nod to her excellent mother Layla, and because a big girl has to have a frilly name.  I couldn’t agree more!

Congratulations Dianne – you win a pack of 5 of my Equus cards!  I know you’ll put them to good use.

I was going to announce our Etsy shops today but decided to wait until tomorrow… I feel the need to add a few more items to our shops before we go ahead and make them “public.”  Thank you for your patience, and see you tomorrow! 

Here’s a sneak peek —
