Calves #3 and #4

Monday, February 3, 2014

On January 31st I woke up to falling snow and hurried outside before it melted to get these shots of the two newest calves.

 We noticed Cookies had a calf with her when we checked cows Thursday night, but I couldn't wait to get a good look at his coloring in daylight.  It is always so interesting to see the mix of the black and white.

#13 had her baby right before I left for work on Thursday.  We decided the mom must have had a red gene in her lineage somewhere because this is the 3rd red white faced calf she has had in a row.  Normally I would expect the black coloring to be dominate, but every time she is bred to a Hereford bull the baby is red.
