Faces In the Field
Last night as I left the field, I changed my guess as to who was having the next calf.
I took one look at these teats and just knew this stumpy old fashioned type Hereford was next to calve.
I bet myself 25 cents that she was the absolute next one.
There were no calves in the field at 6 am, and I started to doubt my guessing game.
When I arrived tonight to check the herd on my way back home from work, here is what I found:
A very stocky bull calf. He weighed 84 lbs and has white ears and four very cute white stockings.
I made him a steer and weighed him.
He was exhausted from being born and decided to lay back down as other cows came over to greet him.
I love it when I win my own bets.
I also love healthy stocky red calves.
What kind of calves are your favorite ?
