    She is 'officially' a girl!!!

    And she is a happy, strong, bouncing baby.

    I told Jeff that he is going to make a FORTUNE off that bull when it's time to send him on. He's fathered 5 strong, healthy calves - ALL HEIFERS!!!!. But now that his herd is almost all daughters (and this one grand daughter), it's time to bring in new blood.

    They have an 'M' theme going - Mama, Madeline (Maddie), Margareta (Gretta)..I can't remember the others
    I'm going to suggest Magnolia or Marigold. But they'll choose her name.

    What a fortuitous surprise! It could have turned out very badly, since mama was young and you didn't know that she was pregnant. So glad they are doing as nature intended.

    Well done!!! Glad to hear things are doing so good.

    Best part is you get to learn on his calf before it's Eva's turn.

    Are you milking her?
    You know you can set the camera on a bale of hay or something, then run and get in the picture.

    Just trying to be helpful you know...
