We’re so excited! Our heifer Annabelle had her first calf on Monday! She’s a “heifer” no more and enters the hallowed ranks of “cow-hood.”
Annabelle is 3 yrs old and our first baby to have a baby–well, cow-wise anyway. (We seem to throw a lot of bull calves around here!)
But our baby girl had a baby girl! And she’s a tiny little thing–with ears so big you’d think her daddy was a mule! (Just for the record, he wasn’t, it was our bull Chester. Don’t want you getting mixed up or anything!)
She’s a spunky little thing too! Already racing around on those wobbly, toothpick legs.
And Annabelle is a great momma so far! No help needed at all. Although I have to admit, our cows believe that “it takes a village” and you’ll find them all washing her up and keeping an eye on her skittering around.
Now we just need a name… (Yes, suggestions are welcome!)
