Our first calf of 2017 is a heifer born on March 30. This is her first calf, too. She did very well and is very proud of her new little girl.
One down and 7 more to go. Last year we has 4 bull calves and a heifer. This year we have started out with a heifer.
Of course, July has to have her photo taken and a good rub down. She is looking so much like her mother is it to hard to tell them apart. They both like their head scratched, which isn’t such a good idea anymore. Scratching your calves your calves on the head when they are born gets addictive to them. Kind of like sticking your babies thumb in their mouth to pacify them. It is something you regret doing later on.
I have been working on a post all week that I have not finished. I wanted to get this one done about the calf, though because it is a current event.
Well, I better get off here for now. Take care and enjoy your weekend. OH, if weather permits, GET DIRTY!!!
