every once in a while, there is a calf that just seems to have "it"....two years ago, it was Mabel, Moose's mom, before that Alley, Millie and Shiraz. All the girls inbetween were amazing too but the "it" is just something that makes you look twice if you catch a glance of them.
This year it is little Indy, the Shiraz/Decker heifer. She was an adorable baby and is growing into a flashy little show heifer. Indy has full eye pigment (something we LOVE as MMH), a feminine look about her, length and great width for her age, but more than anything, there seems to be a presence about her. I guess "it" is hard to define but you know it when you see it!!!
well, it might be considered child labor IF 1) he was actually doing something helpful or 2) you had to force him but believe it or not, Alex's latest post cattle feeding activity is to push around shavings in the trailer!! We were preparing it for our upcoming trip to Amarillo to pick up/drop off cattle so stay tuned for news on our new additions!! Rumor is I am the co-captain for the road trip...
the girls are getting ready for our first cold front of the season....they have plenty of "fluff" to keep them warm but I am not sure I am ready!! The only one that will appreciate our winters will be Wyatt. Compared to NE, it will almost seem like summer!!
well not so much if you are an MMH cow....this year the girls have enjoyed better weather and grass. Lizzy, Sugar and Shiraz are all nursing fall born calves but you would never know
meet "Doc"...he is from Nebraska and has been enjoying a vacation of sorts in Texas for the past couple months. He is a nice little steer and other than a brief kick to my friend Lulu the dog, he is very gentle and easy going! I guess those cornhuskers are a little protective over their cubes....
Yup...still looking at the future of MMH....this is Lizzy, a 3 year old MMH born and bred cow, with her heifer calf Chloe at her side. They make a nice pair and Lizzy misses the show ring so keep an eye out for them as a cow/calf pair in Houston this spring.
We have to admit, we are pretty excited about the upcoming calves....while they will be on the young side in Houston, the MMH fall born calves look GREAT!! This is Shiraz's heifer, Indy, at just 6 weeks old. She has a very feminine, eye catching look about her, great length, clean neck and good muscle....we can't wait to see her mature!
