February 28 ~ Photo A Day #59

Spring time is always the time of new life…today brought us our first calf of the year!

I was feeding the horses about 4 PM at the big barn and heard some bawling from the cows. When I went down to check, Ellie Mae had already had a nice heifer on the ground. The lil’ one hadn’t even stood up yet in this photo…this is is about as fresh as they get!

Momma Cow & Newborn Calf

Ellie Mae is an Angus cross beef cow and we bred her to a Hereford bull…that’s where the white face comes in.

(the fuzzy spot on Ellie Mae’s face is a rain drop…sorry ’bout that)
