I know that you may (or not) know that I have been watching the cows and calfs out in front of our and John’s (Peter’s Dad) houses. I call it the Maternity Ward – Country Style. They belong to a man that use to rent pasture from the previous owner of the property.
When Harvey and Peter went to a cattle sale In January they got 5 breed heffers. (breeded?! bread?! Those are the females, right?) ANYWAY the first of the cows has had a calf. Peter and his Dad have their first calf. I think it is wonderful. That is why I sent Harvey out to take pictures. I don’t want to make a pet out of their first calf. I am at the computer not in the field in any way shape or form…. but isn’t she CUTE?!?!?
I have found out that the ear tag notes that this was cow 355
What a name… REALLY WINDY! Is her Dame I guess we should have expected her to deliver on a stormy day!!
OK, she has some good stock (Like I would know?!?!) but her sire might be a little harder to prove.
A few of the lucky fathers might include:
Anyone of these studly bulls might be the father. So I guess gene testing will have to be done before they are registered. I can’t imagine what has become of these guys – I am hoping they are still making deposits in the gene pool.
I am very happy that the first one has hit the ground running as you might say. I am hoping the rest of the 4 goes as easily. It is always a flip of a coin weither it will go smoothy or not. WOW!! I sounded like I really knew what I was talking about there! Don’t worry I won’t let it go to my head!!
My brother Harvey, after the pictures. Doesn’t he look excited? OK, well thanks anyway brother!!
