Calves 
The calves coming up and trying to figure out what I am up to.  I love this set of calves because they aren't very spooky.  No matter what I do they come up towards me and are curious as to what I am doing.  Hopefully this means they will be somewhat gentle.  Taken 1/09/2007.

A couple of calves coming in to feed after our little snow storm.  We got a couple of inches of snow is all.  I guess a little is better than none at all but it sure isn't much.  Taken 12/29/2006.

The bum calves we had around the house all summer think they are more horse than cow having run with Nylon all summer.  I called them the buddies after they bonded so.  I took the calves in to the auction the other day. I think Nylons happier now that he doesn't have the calves following him around.  Taken 10/28/2006.

The replacement heifers peacefully grazing on the volunteer barley coming up.  It sure is nice to have them out of the corral and grazing green grass.  Taken 10/02/2006.

The heifer calves being brand inspected as they come off the scale.  They were really spooked by it for some reason where the steers were a lot calmer.  Taken 9/29/2006.

Here is a picture of the heifer calves that I sold.  My Darling Wife managed to take a few shots while I was busy.  Everybody present commented on how framy the calves were and how they are really prepared to gain weight for the buyers.  A little more grass and I could have put some more weight on them.  Taken 9/29/2006.

This calf really caught my eye as cute while he was a baby.  Now days the calves are big enough I don't know that cute is the proper term.  I enjoy looking back sometimes.  Taken 4/5/2006.

I found this calf with foot rot yesterday and doctored him.  It has been years since the last time I seen a calf with foot rot.  I get it in the yearlings and cows on occasion, but calves, no.  I'm keeping him and his mom close for a few days so i can hit him with medicine again to make sure he is cured.  Taken 7/10/2006.
