Newest Addition

Look what I found this afternoon.  Well, the husband actually found it this morning.  But I got the first pictures.  So since he has no proof, I'm claiming the discovery as mine.

I took my life in my own hands and walked out into the pasture.  Just for you blogger peeps cause I know you want pictures.

Momma (Turnin' Trix AKA Crazy Heifer) wasn't real keen on me being out in the pasture.  Notice I have the hay ring between me and momma.  Since there was nothing else out there, I figured that would be the best thing to save my life.

Ruh roh!  Momma gettin' up!  Can you see the baby?  It's laying right in front of her.  Sneaky lil devil!  I kept reassuring miss thing that I came in peace, I just want to see the baby.  Make it get up.  Please!!!

Finally success!!  Isn't it cute.

I just love when they work with me.  I had my point and shoot camera zoomed to the max.  I was keeping my fingers crossed that the pictures turned out.  They're grainy but good enough.  And I made a safe retreat!  My day is complete.

Sweet little calf ,Momma does have a bit of a "heads up "look about her

I don't think a person could ever get sick of seeing calves. If they do they are un-american! Thats like not liking pie.

There's nothing better than new life. What a perfect little being. We have one spotted cow, a Shorthorn and we always want a spotted calf out of her. So far she's had two. The heifer went to the daughter of a friend as a college graduation present.
