A sure sign of spring in Galax, Virginia: baby calves. Five were born in the last two weeks for a total of twelve so far. More should be coming in the next few days. Seeing lots of “white” this year, which I call “chrome!” ha!
This is my cow, Saird Luckett, and her new heifer calf.
This is a bull calf that was born a few days ago – a Panda!
The two newest “cousins” love playing together!
These babes are a few weeks old:
We raise Simmental’s and have pretty much switched over to black but we still have a few red cows who have occasional red calves (a red cow can have a black calf too if bred to a black bull.)
It’s going to be in the high 70’s today with a chance of setting a record, but back to freezing temps for the weekend! I think most of us are experiencing these crazy highs and lows this year.
I’m headed out tonight for the Homesteaders on the Prairie Antique Show in Arthur, Illinois! Five great shows at seven venues in the area this weekend! Come out and see me!
