Six new calves and counting!

These two bull calves are not twins, but brothers. The mamma belongs to the calf on the right, but is being an attentive surrogate as the other calves mother eats. The calf on the left is only hours old and both are doing great.

I am amazed at the ease that a Hereford cow gives birth. Don't get me wrong...I'm sure it's hard work, but in my current state (8 mos pregnant) I can not help but admire the mamas in the pasture. We are getting a new calf of two almost every day.  There really are very few things in this world cutter than a baby calf.
