    Any name suggestions? Both boys.

    As a kid, all our poddies were food related names. Chop, Mince, Steak, Stew etc. Mostly lambs, but a few calves in there too lol.

    I have no name suggestions, but I am wondering what you do with those calves. I am assuming that you probably couldn't match them back up with their momma's. Does someone take them and bottle feed them or are they used as veal?

    We always ended up with bottle calves when I was a kid, the only one I can remember the name of was Sampson.

    Yep mommaswft them. Maiden heifers so not much chance of them comin back. Normally the boss puts them
    Down but be said he is sick of having to do it, and his wife and daughter and I said we were willing to raise them. So they will be bottle calves and when bigger will go out with the horses.

    I already named another calf T-Bone ha ha so it's taken!
