4 days old and playful

This little calf had us worried because Mama didn't seem to have enough milk in her udder. I was ready to bottle feed, but really didn't want to intervene unless necessary. We've been keeping a close eye on him, and I'm feeling much better after watching him romp around this evening. A big thank you to everyone that offered advise!

The last calf of the season

In sticking with the naming convention of the American Highland Cattle Association, (which by the way really helps) all of our calves this year start with the letter 'F'. So without further ado, I introduce Flank, joining his half sisters Fuschia and Fiona.
