Baby Bovines And Winter Woolies

It was fifty-seven degrees in our beautiful corner of Arkansas Monday.  Made me go outside, not to work, Lord knows, there is plenty of work, but to just look.

We had a new baby girl, Mom and she are doing fine.

Here is our last bull, out of our only white face Gelbvieh.
What is the map on his forehead?
I am hoping it is a sign of good fortune.

New little bull, cow, and a spring heifer here.
All dressed in their winter woolies.
Were you expecting sheep?
Happy Birthday, Robert E. Lee and to my daughter, Melissa!

Oh how sweet! I think his 'map' looks more like a white dove.
Enjoy your warm weather.

I hear Spring coming. He is a cutie.

That's exactly what I thought, he's got a bird on his forehead. (Reminded me of twitter - it's a sad day for my imagination *lol*.)

Lori E said...

Diandra is right...it is the Twitter bird facing the other way. This really must be an omen Gail. This is telling you that you must be on Twitter.
So much for you thinking it is a map omen of some place wonderful to visit, like Greece.
He is a cutie for sure.

Hello Gail
Fabulous 'new baby' photos, they look like good sturdy animals. The calf seems to be the image of her mother and I must say that little bull has a wondering look on his face - he wonders why you are just standing there looking at him lol
Came to you via Grammy (Empty Nest) - will have a look round your blog tosee what your town of Melbourne is like compared to the city where i live. Well not really 'in' the city but a leafy suburb to the east in the foothills of the Dandenongs.
Take care
Cathy

Ahhhhhhhh! Most baby animals are so cute. I am always a sucker for them........always counted a bit "soft" for a farm person!

Baby calves are just the sweetest!! I love to see them running and kicking in the fields! No calves on our farm this year. We usually lease out ground for winter feeding/calving, but that didn't happen this year. Will miss seeing the babies!
