Okay, I just found out that I don't take enough pictures of the cows. But here are a couple.
My sister's tarentaise/jersey bull, Tyme.
My favourite dexter heifer, Inky. She is now a second time calver.
My cow, Latte, as a calf. I worked long and hard to get this little gal out of her mother. Her head was turned back, and the cow was too young (bought as a bred heifer). She is a tarentaise/angus, half sister to Tyme, (I sold the cow to my sister).
The jersey bull that Dad and Mum just sold, Skipper. We had too many of his daughters that we were keeping, and too many bulls. Three bulls for 20 cows.
A half jersey heifer, Casey.
Dexter/jersey calf, Ferrid, and his mother, Fortune
Mandy, Dutch belted/Jersey heifer. She will calve for the first time this year.
Buttons, Dutch belted/angus heifer, she is now a second timer.
Esther, dexter cow (Inky's mom). Esther has really nice stocky calves, so we kept her 2012 calf a bull.
Bert, Esther's 2011 steer. Half jersey.
And finally the cow from hell! Vanilla Cream!
She is a milk cow, but it you don't tie her back leg up (to the wall behind her), she will try to kill you, not a joke. She has kicked everybody who has ever milked her, and she doesn't kick lightly. Sure is pretty though!
