meet “Z”

I’m steering away from the recipes and the SAHM bewilderedness for a while to introduce the first round of calfs at the ranch this year. Sorry to do this to you but how could I pass up cute pictures of baby cows? Especially one in particular.

Every once in a while there comes a calf that you just love. The last one was four years ago when a very curious calf drank my beer while I was fishing. So, we named her  Hefeweizen. Her tenacity and boldness made her stand out. Even though she did not have the qualities we look for in a cow to add to the herd she stole everyone’s hearts and now she’s here to stay. Ha ha ha, sorry Mike.

This year I think it’s happened again. I spent about an hour with this new calf born a couple of days ago and now I can’t get enough. What to do? We’ll see come next year if she will stay at the ranch. Fingers crossed!

Meet Z and some of her brothers and sisters…

Z, her mamma, and Hefeweizen’s bull calf.

I love this time of year!

and just because I have to… here’s my baby

A quick look at the soaked north quarter. I couldn’t even get back to the southern end of the ranch.

    What cute calves (and an even cuter baby!) Just wanted to thank you for commenting on my blog the other day. Good luck with your own blogging!

    What a cute face on that calf but your baby wins the cuteness contest hands down :) I enjoyed reading this. I can’t wait to see what else you have on here.

    Aww, your baby does win the cuteness contest hands down against the calf (which is a good thing, LOL). What a cutey-pie :)
