Ranch pictures

Just a few I've taken this spring

Our wildest colored calf this year

Calves out of our 'mutant' bull... Except the dark red, solid black and the black WF in the background.

Left this one a bull. Last of the calves, out of the black Hereford..

Remember Hurt Mouth, a ice covered limb fell on her when she was a newborn and crushed her face. It took her a extra year to grow good enough to calve. Her first this year and she's putting everything into her. Hadnt really paid attention to HM in the pasture, but came across her and saw her calf nursing. I was really surprised to see such a nice first calf out of HM. Glad I kept her...very sweet cow

Well I hate the first one...
The rest look good. Look like good powerful calves, not to fleshy and lots of room to grow.

I named her Capri

See, the back half is Hereford, then the white line divides her and the front half is sim/angus...

Nice looking calves, but if a Hereford bull can't put a white face on every calf something is definitely wrong somewhere.

We no longer have that bull nor do we care about white faces..that one herd had the Hereford and many did have white faces. Not sure if we'll ever go the black Hereford direction. It was our daughters bull we borrowed when we got in a bull bind. Got some nice calves out of him, the one out of the red cows is one....If we keep any Hereford, it will probably be from that calf if he grows right. Sure love his mother and she's a twinner and quite the milker..

That's not unusual for a "Black Hereford".

I guess with any bull, you don't know what you're going to get until you have that first calf crop. My daughter was getting almost all w/f, but not 100%. She had another black Hereford she was using... He was struck by lightning and the one we borrowed came up sterile this spring. The solid black calf we left a bull, is out of that pasture where the Hereford was, but we didn't put the Hereford in until later in the season so he's not out of that bull.

Well I guess hate was a little rough. She'd probably make me smile and my granddaughter would wanna hug her neck.
Not what I would be shooting for in my calves though.

That's better.... and with a name like Capri, she's adorable... She wont make heifer cut, born too late in the season. Really miss my colored up calves...but, considering what we usually get out of a couple a year she's showing we're on the border of getting only solids or w/f now...
