Cute calf

Our neighbor had this cutey born recently. She was only a day or 2 old in these pictures.



I love having cows as neighbors.

Stumbled on your blog from Claire's. I am a transplanted yankee now living on a small organic farm in...Georgia!
We have rescued dogs, cats, we raise chickens and goats, and we are expecting our first kidding any moment now-so i really enjoyed the photo of the calf. One of our neighbor's cows "dropped" her baby in front of me last week. I had never seen one born before-it was really neat.

I've come across your blog recently and have enjoyed reading it. We have angora goats, as well as sheep, alpacas, angora rabbits, and chickens on our place. But no cows. However, I had to comment, as I was struck by what you said about having cows as neighbors. I have a lot of respect for them, they are stolid, stoic, and peaceful creatures, accepting their lot in the order of things without complaint :) Anyway, some folks run cattle on pasture they rent next to our property and just every so often a few of them will sidle over close to the fence line looking for something to nibble on and it just absolutely drives our LGD's absolutely nuts. I guess they just can't figure out what those things are and why they would choose to get so close to their property or maybe they're concerned that they are really big predators. Anyway, I look forward to keeping up with your blog. Ken and Mary Berry of FancyFibers Farm, Texas

The calf is so cute! I can't imagine having any babies here at our place, we are in the middle of a blizzard!

What a cutie! I've got baby goats due in a couple weeks and I can't wait!

Polly, where bout in GA? Our first kid is expected in May.

Ken and Mary welcome. The cows love our goats. They can't seem to figure out what these little things are. The cows hang at the fence near the goats just watching them.

Isn't farm life wonderful?

Hope you and Logan are faring well and staying warm.

It is a cutie. I couldn't think of a better neighbor myself. It must be great living on a Farm.

Morning, stumbled on your blog from, On the way to Critter Farm Blog. I myself have a farm in WV. I have cattle, chickens, 1 goat, rabbit, horse, dogs and cats and in the spring my girls raise lambs for a 4H project. I call it the Cattle Call Farm, because it seems I'm always on call for my cows. They seem to run the place.It's always nice to find people who enjoy farming and their animals.

I wonder if you could choose and pay for a cow, watch it being raised and then have it butchered. You'd know where you food came from and you'd have a freezer full of healthy beef, too. All without even having to leave your house.

The baby calf is so cute. I had no idea that one of your goats was expecting. Who is the mother-in-waiting?
