Had a bum around here for about a week or so.  A twin that the mom wouldn't accept.  Grafted him on a two year old that lost a calf.  He was a cute little guy, that's for sure.  Taken 3/12/2008.

The cows are really starting to calve now.  There are all kinds of cute calves running around.  I might be tired from the long days and short nights, but I never get tired of the miracle of life being played out at this time of year.  Taken 3/16/2008.

Finally got the first calf on the cows.  I don't know what they were holding on for.  Usually I have one by the first but this year they stuck to schedule a little better.  Taken 3/9/2008.

This calf sure found a nice comfortable place to lay.  They are not dumb though, they always seem to find the nice dry, warm spots to lay down.  Taken 2/8/2008.

The heifers have had their first calf.  Born the evening of the 3rd.  The Hired Hand swore we wouldn't have a calf on the ground till the 15th of the month.  I told  him we would have at least 10 by then.  He definitely was wrong, now we will see if I am right or not.  Taken 2/4/2008.

We got a little snow the other day.  it didn't amount to much but it's nice to see it white around here.  It makes you think it is winter at least.  The calves are eating their hay in the background.  taken 12/31/2007.

The calves eating on their ration of hay.  None of the cattle are real fond of the hay I am feeding but I tell them "tough, it's better than a snowball."  For the record the hay is year old wild hay which is real grassy and dry.  It needs fed and then we will be onto good alfalfa.  Taken 12/28/2007.

Some of the calves eating their cake.  Not all of them have learned to eat it yet.  now that we have started feeding hay the rest should learn no problem.  Taken 12/25/2007.

The replacement heifer calves peacefully grazing on a hillside.  They've been on a protein tub type supplement since weaning and have been doing great.  It's about time to start feeding them though.  Nutrition levels are getting pretty low in the feed.  Taken 12/12/2007.

Some of the replacement heifer calves this year.  I was getting a little shy of color in the herd so I kept a couple of red ones.  I like to see that color once in a while.  They must be a little prejudiced though.  They are always hanging together like the black cattle aren't good enough for them.  Go figure.  Taken 11/15/2007.

Lucky thinks the grain I am feeding Bella is really good stuff so they share, at least he looks at it like sharing.  I'm not sure Bella agrees.  Taken 11/10/2007.
