A little heifer is born

The first calf was born on the farm and she is a registered miniature Hereford heifer named Penny.

She is about 2 weeks old in these pictures and you can tell she is very small. Compare her to the fence post by her mom.

She loves the kids and all the attention she has been getting.

Cadilac at 11 months old

Cadilac has grown a lot since our daughter and her husband bought her. She losing her baby face.

She will be 1 – year old next month. She seems so small standing next to Scamper the other Minature Hereford but Scamper is almost 2.

I have a soft spot in my heart for cows they are my favorite farm animal. I love to talk to the cows, pet them and feed them clover.

Daisy likes to charge the cows next door to us when they are the fence then she kisses them on their noses lol. They just stand there they are not scared of her.

On Wednesday I was over at the little farm and decided to try and get a few pictures. That was when Cadilac gave me this look. She was thinking ” I was just chewing my cud and minding my own business and here you come to take more pictures. ”

Have a great Memorial weekend everyone do a few projects and a lot of relaxing.

First babies born on the farm

The first picture is the mama goat before she had the babies.

These are the first babies born on the Shady Acres Rosharon farm.

These pics were taken at 2 days old. The mama goat was a first-time mom and she had a boy and a girl both healthy and happy.

They both have moon spots, the boy has waddles and they are both just adorable. Waddles are the things hanging from his neck his mom has one too and many people love these.

If you look back I bet you can guess which one the dad was lol.

The next baby goats should be born in May.
