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…

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.
