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.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

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.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

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!

Poor guys. Hmm, Mike and Ike (candy, but still a food LOL)? Riff and Raff? Babe and Blue (my brother used to have a pair of trained driving oxen with those names)?
