We welcomed a new baby to the farm yesterday morning, a cute little dun Dexter bull calf. It might have been a chilly 22 degrees when I saw him for the first time in the pasture, but he didn't let the chilly winter weather slow him down any. He was up and movin' with his mother, and looked to be a very good eater!
Due to his chilly morning birthday we've named him Pixie's Popsicle (after his mother, Pixie), and look forward to watching him grow. He makes calf #5 on the farm right now. What a fun time for babies!
