It's a boy......

introducing my new baby............
a boy so he will only be here for a few years...........we do run a business and bull calves (once marked called steers) only last here a few years............
now for a name.............
I was all set for Hetty the hereford heifer but then hello it's a boy.........so not sure now..........tried Arthur, Henry, George and Billy but they are not working........thinking it's not going to be a real name........
He's a big lump of a calf........
Maybe he was a twin???? anyway I am his new mother..........
How cute is he...........
Everything around here involves MUD, MUD and more MUD and lots of it at the moment............
We need to do some sheep work today and had to go and drain the yards in order to get the sheep thru............
lots of bucketing involved here...........
then we kind of swept it with grain rakes......to take the slop off the top....
atleast I think the sheep will walk thru now...........it's putrid water/mud and stinks........but the job had to be done.......
So Lamby has a new friend to sleep with now.........in the haystack.......
look at her trying to get the bottles for some more milk........
she is a greedy guts............
She has grown heaps........she loves the deck on the Chookshed...........nice sunny spot out of the wind..........
finally some sunny days and the feed is growing.........

So any suggestions for my new baby boys name????
Catch you later......

    Welcome to the new fellow. Is he a Sherlock or Watson?

  9. If you let him be a bull you could call him Hef as in Hugh Hefner. Ha Ha. May be muddy would be a good name considering the circumstances.

  10. Oh joy! What fun it must have been cleaning out the yards. I bet a long hot shower was required at the end of the day. I know I'm probably politically incorrect here, but what about. " Sir Loin"?
