Meet the New Calves

November brought several new additions to the farm. We keep a small herd of Dexter cattle, and four of our cows delivered calves in November. I thought I would introduce you to the new members of the herd!


Pixie Stix was the first calf to be born. A big, strong healthy dun! She shows lots of independence, and is always very curious about me and the camera.


Harry was the second calf to be born in November. He needed a little encouragement to find his mama's udder, but once he learned where 24/7 snacks could be found, he was good to go.

@Anna, Ha, I see you changed the name of Dumbo to Harry. I like Harry better. He seems to be a healthy young bull so the confusing start in life hasn’t really been to his detriment. You have the beginning of a fine herd of cattle. What will you do with the two bull calves? They are so cute when they are just born aren’t they? Do you have any more cows with calf to add to the new life on the farm? Good luck with all you animal endevours. Have a great day on the farm.
