Baby Update!

Well, we had a really busy day today...went to the butcher to pick up 1/2 a beef and a hog then had to come home and make it all fit in the freezer, delivered a load of wood and various other "chores" so I didn't get to play today.

So I thought I'd share some pics of the calves! They are growing so fast right now and boy are they ever fun to watch play. We get hours of enjoyment from those little squirts.

Here you go....

This is Holly - the first calf born.

She's a wild one she is...just look at that tail ;)

Calves - 1-10 069

Here she is with her mom...

The Twins!

We decided on names for them ~ since it's a boy and girl we are calling them Bonnie and Clyde - LOL!! Seems like all they ever do is eat ~ I'm sure she thinks so too!

This little bugger is one you haven't seen before ~ he's a bull that was born on the 8th. He's got four nice white socks so that's his name...Socks. I love these two pics, he just got done eating and forgot to disengage his tongue - LOL!!

This little girl is the youngest...she doesn't have a name yet but she's a sweetie!

And this is prob. my fav. picture I took that day...this is Clyde shortly after we let the mom's & babies out for the first time since they were born. I'd love to know what he was thinking...poor little guy ~ looks so scared! He's my little sweetie ~ he loves to be petted and loved up.

So there you go...all babies are doing well and enjoying the sunshine!

Hope you have some time to play this weekend and get a little inky!

We are going to a great auction tomorrow. Not sure if I'll be lucky enough to buy anything or not but I'm taking my camera. This farm has been in the family 4 generations and there are goods from the 1800's forward. I can't wait!

Have a wonderful weekend friends!!

  3. Glad they are all doing well. How wonderful to have all those litle cuties to love and pet.
    I do like the little bull pulling his tongue out (I know that is not what he was doing really but it looks like he is saying "buzz off you with that camera")
