Pictures Courtesy of the Husband

The husband sent me an email today that said

"I fed the cows and the baby was right up there.  It's a BOY!  It looked healthy but small and cold.  I went back in the house and got your fancy camera and took some pictures.  All I did was turn it on, point and shoot."

I had to laugh when I read it.  My fancy camera!  I called him on my way home and asked how the picture takin' went.  He said sometimes when he took a picture, it would take alot at one time.  And a few other times, he did good cause he would push the button half way down, it would focus, then he would take the picture.  Hmmm.  I couldn't wait to get home and see what he got.

When I looked thru them, I could tell the ones that the camera just went "off".  They were all blurry.  But he did have a few good ones.  I picked out my favorite one for y'all.

Isn't he cute!  The husband said he was running around and kickin'.  Havin' a good 'ol time out in the pasture. I love havin' babies at the house.  They are so much fun to watch.  If I can catch him playin', I'll have to video it to post.

On a side note, I want to thank everyone for their kind comments and emails.  Y'all are so awesome to us in our sad time and we do appreciate all the prayers and thoughts.

Baby calves have to be one of the cutest babies God put on this planet! And you have so much color in your herd! Beats our mostly black calves. This year though we have some new cows that are crossed on Hereford Bulls so we'll have some Black Baldies! Yippee! As a commercial cow/calf operation you gotta raise what sells and Angus is where it's at.
