A little Pepper for my Ruby, Please.

Some of you may remember my telling about our Ruby and Garnet (her first-born that we gave to our neighbors as a thank you for letting us keep our cows at their property for 4 years till we got our own fencing up) going off to 'camp' last summer. One neighbor calls it Sex Camp cause 'that's why they go, you know'. Well, camp was a huge success for our Ruby.....she presented us with a little bull calf last Friday evening. Big sister Dolly isn't sure what to do with that little guy yet. Mostly she nudges him and tries to get him to play...Ruby runs her off each time. Little guy is only about 50 pounds and no match for his big sister, Dolly, who weighs over 500 pounds.

We asked our Emily to name this newest addition to the the time we didn't know if it was a boy or a girl so she chose a nonsexist name. Folks, I give you Pepper!

Isn't that the cutest darned little face you have seen in a very long time? He is still a bit spindly on his legs, but he's a trooper and spends a lot of time near where his Mama is, whether it's near the hay ring, or out in the pasture, taking in the sun.

We also had some baby chicks arrive and story soon

Thanks for stopping by.
