This little boo entered our world early this morning; the first calf of the season from a small batch of new heifers. Not sure of the sex because mama is very protective. I had to leave them alone so they could bond. We’ll have a much smaller herd to calve out this year because of the drought. I will cherish each and every one and I look forward to the smile they will put on my face. I’m so crazy about the little ones!

    Good luck. We have about 15 calves on the ground and expect about 230 more before we finish! Sure hope you folks get some good moisture for the pastures and everything else.

    A million years ago, I raised shorthorn beef cattle. I love young ones.

    Gosh, I LOVE calving season. The hint that spring is upon us, the renewal of life, the BABIES; I love it all. The in-laws had their first surprise calf of the year just last Thursday. Unfortunately, the little one didn’t survive but with the sadness of this first calf’s struggles comes a boatload of hope for the rest of the herd. Have a good season, Leah 🙂
