Me too! He should start filling up very soon. Both parents are pretty big. Pity that not a heifer, but well, at least have alive and healthy calf.

Eating breakfast in the new fresh pasture! Perfect for the new moms and their calves.

I like the looks of that cow! Horns included.

Thanks. Not many people like horns nowadays! Her dam has what I would call medium size too. Both very gentle natured girls, so no bother with it.

Managed to take a photo of the heifer's dam. She's a bit skinnier now due to less grass this year and she's a very heavy milker. The heifer on the left is out of the same bbxdairy cow, sired by Red Angus bull. We got two bull calves from the same bull this fall. Heifer is ~19months old, incalf with angus, and is easily over 1500lbs. A true tank. If our neighbour hasn't kept her, I was ready to buy this one too!

And april born calf sired by red angus from the same cow. Weighing 660-700lbs.
