Spring Calves

Spring is a beautiful time of year here on the ranch, and I think it has finally arrived. Big puffy white clouds in the sky and a gentle warm breeze.

Besides the flowers which are also blooming, we have new calves.

Both of our bred heifers for this season have given birth with no problems and we have healthy, strong calves. These two are the start of our new grass fed beef breeding program and it is nice to see all the hard work yielding great results.

The calf on the left is a heifer and on the right is a bull calf two weeks younger. They love to run and play, then flop down for a nap in the sun.

And they never get too far away from one of the mamas.

      The calves are cuties. We love to watch them running and playing in the sun – then they flop down and take a nap.

    Cuties! We just got home and found out Eric gathered half the herd, so I guess we are banding, branding and vaccinating tomorrow. :-/. Needs to be done though.

  3. Just wanted to let you know I made a little wax painting of your ranch, I hope you don’t mind 🙂 http://winloseordraw.wordpress.com/2012/04/19/wax-learning-curve/
