First Calf 2014

IMG_8839

Welcome silhouettes in these two photographs, albeit ten days earlier than expected, of our first calf of the season delivered by 0075 on the Paregien Ranch. In past years, we have documented our first calf on this blog to jog our memories and as part of the “Age and Source” verification process when we advertise our calves for sale. Robbin and I went up the hill Sunday morning to check stockwater and to feed the girls, delighted to see this strong, healthy calf. Our year has begun once more.

    • Thanks. 🙂 It’s such a relief, almost exhilarating, to have the summer and last year almost behind us. This early calf, a sign of normality, fills us with hope for another chance with the weather, another season.
