Our beef cattle have been dropping a few calves lately. JF found this one, got him tagged and photographed before his mom had a chance to lick him off.

I could sit for hours and watch a group of babies playing in the newly green pasture.
Aaahhh...the fruits of your labor!

Hi Eng. click twice on photo before clicking properties.
Your doing good. At least these guys arn't taking bets on you klike they did me. I never did find out who won the lottery.

Nice pic. About 2wks more for scheduled 1st calf. Newbons are so adorable.

fun isn't it. they are always so cute, until they hit 350 lbs and get an attitude (just like teenagers). how did you get the picture, it looks as if it were taken from a helicopter!

Maybe this will be easier on the eyes.

They're in a bit of a draw. He was standing just a few feet away to take the pic.
We creep feed from day 1, and ride through them at least once a day on the 4-wheeler. By the time they're 350 lbs. we can nearly rub them. We even have a Hereford that our girls can ride... need to post that pic!

Here is Shelbys Cow she rides. She raised her as a Bottle Calf and does Parades and such with her. She is top Cow of the Herd now and you can use her to lead all the rest around to the different pastures. Mark H.

I can atest to that as fact.
Bottle feeding and extra hands on spoiling makes for some great helpers when I'm leading or gathering cattle fore shoot run-throughs or just getting them back home after neighborhood gad-abouts. Almost got one in each lot.

Great job. Keep it up. I like family pics.
I gotta get pic of Clink's skillet over my head.
