Introducing Itty Bitty

We've been having calves pretty frequently these days. We don't have a massive amount of cattle due to our limited means and specific breeding program for bucking stock. So each baby is very special. But this new baby is more special than most.

She is cute as a bug! I think she's winkin' at me.



But the above pic doesn't really show her uniqueness. She if you can figure it out with this one.



No, it's not that she can pee in unison with another calf. How about here....


The spotted calf is about 2 weeks old and a foot taller!



She is so tiny! I think the other mommas are intrigued with her size too. I couldn't believe it when I saw her. She's about the size of Zena! But with a much bigger attitude. Don't know what we will do with her. Maybe breed her to a miniature bull for miniature rodeo stock. They actually do breed miniatures for youth rough stock. I just want to make her my little yard pet. Bet the husband will have something to say about that though!

She reminds me of the Jersey's my dad used to raise. I used to show them also. They are so cute with their big brown eyes.

J and J Acres said...

Wow... she IS tiny!! You can tell by how high up she stands next to the moms!

I'm sure hubby wouldn't notice if you kept her in the backyard... she would probably blend in with the dogs!

That picture of her peeing along side the other calf is hysterical.
She is adorable. You probably thought maybe there was another one stuck inside her mama, twins.
How fun, baby calves. We have 4 on the ground so far. All doing well!

Well . . . I don't know what has been wrong my my computer, but every time I pulled up your blog I was stuck on "Rivers A Risin'"! I have missed alot!

Love Itty Bitty! She is just precious! I'd make her a pet too!

Glad you had such a good time with the N-Laws! My MIL is moving out on our land - I always went crazy cleaning before she came - now she is gonna know what we are really like!

Congratulations on your year anniversary! AND you are a truly gifted photographer! I'm sure your Crazy M Photography will be a huge success!

Blessings, Friend!

She is too cute!! And to tiny!! I think calves are so cute anyway, but she is adorable!

Paintsmh said...

OH my gosh she looks EXACTLY like my Jersey calf, except for mine has a white center to her tail (I have no clue why)...Maybe there was some Jersey back there laying dormant just waiting to pop out and surprise you and the husband!

I vote yard pet her!

carrielt said...

Robynn's Ravings said...

Of course not THERE! I'm numb from the brain down right now. YOU are a hysterical GOOFball! And I LOVE you!

Tatersmama said...

She's just adorable.. and I think I'd be bringing her into the house... (hmmmm...can you house-train cows?) Well, maybe the yard then?
Girl, I've MISSED you like crazy and I've got a lot of catching up to do!
