I'll probably skip this one. I don't do 'cute'.

You don’t have to, that’s the calf’s job.

I will have to skip this one. All of the calves around here are well past the cute stage. Well that and they are all way up into the hills. I would have to borrow a horse just to get to where the calves are.

Dont tell me that haha. The shorthorn bull that I used to borrow for a friend killed both of my cows. Now i say that lightly. But he sired 4 calves on my farm, 2 calves were sick, both killed the dam. So he was actually retired.

You may know the guy that i used for my short horns though. You know a guy with the last name Spady?
