Show your calf pictures.

With the bull thread going good, I figured I start this one. After all this is why we do what we do.
Here's some of mine with their maker in the background.

Highgrit I have a calf similar in color to the one that is sideways in the front. She was solid black with a white face when she was born but she has a reddish blackish coat similar to yours now, any idea why that happens? I'll post some pictures of her next time I have a chance to take one.

Often times that is dead winter or baby hair and they will shed off black again. Most of my Brangus have a brown, sun bleached faze. However sired by the Herf, could be different.

That makes a lot of sense! It does kind of look like its sun bleached hair, the calfs momma was one of the first two heifers I bought and she took it upon herself to get bred by jumping the fence into the neighbors pasture.

Those are some good looking calves yall have posted. Here are a few of mine. Most of them are from the winter before the grass came on. Sorry if the pictures are huge.

Here's one that was playing hide and seek a while back. Took me a while to figure out where it had got off too. Momma was giving me the look.

These are some great calf pictures everyone! I love the calf hiding in the hay ring. A warm, dry spot!

Dubcharo I know that your cattle stay inside a good part of the year. So do they get sunburned noses when the go out in spring?

Branguscowgirl I saw sunburn once on a cow. We send the group out a day without too much sun. Maybe the white color help a bit.
