My Favorites :)

Everyone has their favorite animals on their farm. So I decided to share some of my favorites.

Feel free to share your fav's too!!!!

Annabell-former show calf. She was born on Christmas Eve, hence the name. She should be having a baby soon. Her first!!


Delilah- Another former show calf, also going to be calving very soon. She throws some nice looking calves.



This is a family friends heifer that was brought over to be bred, and bred she is!!!!!



Newborn heifer!!!! AWWWWWW!!!!






Jenny at work halter breaking a steer. Or rather, laying down on the job lol. The metal halter looks cruel, but it is less so than the rope halter because the rope halters can tighten and not let loose, when the matal only puts pressure when being pulled on.

Aw! How cute. I love cows. I had a red angus named Snort and her baby Winnie (not the noise, like Winnie the Pooh) I halter broke both of them the hard way, by being drug all over the field, lol. How long at a time does Jenny work? That's pretty interesting.

I really need to take some pictures of the Twins. I just keep getting caught up playing with Froggy and forget all about them. They look very much like your baby calf.

Aww! Too cute you guys! I love the baby heifer!

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...

Jenny works for about 3 days then the calf is taken off of her and messed with by hand. She also gets breaks during the time that she is working when we will go unhook the calf and mess with it by hand.

Apachie - Snort is adorable. I had a "hereford" looking steer named Tonka. He was the biggest baby, I didn't even have to halter break him lol. I have pics (I've posted them before) of him asleep with his head in my lap. I was also sleeping.

I have allways gotten lucky with the cattle that I raised and showed myself. Tonka, Delilah, and Annabell were all extremely easy to halter break. I'd have to say that the hardest one was Delilah. And that's cause her momma was a sh*t so we didn't get to her as quick as the others. Tonka and Delilah have the same momma, but Tonka took after his daddy who you could walk up and pet from the moment he hit the ground. He is by far my favorite in the pasture, but I'm guessing he was off visiting the neighbor girls cause I didn't see him out there. Lol. Good thing our neighbor likes the calves he throws!!

How interesting to see your method of halter breaking a steer. I would never have thought of that. Delilah is lovely.
