Mom #12 has bull 5/30/12

This white guy is one of the first this year with black points.  He is brave and curious.  His mom (#12) is saying, "Hey dude, let's get out of here."

Swallows- 5/24/12

Every year about three weeks after the robins arrive (May 1) the swallows swarm this bank and begin the procreation cycle.

Second photo is June 27/12.  The number of swallow holes has risen to 247.  I'm guessing their numbers will at least triple this summer.

#34 has a Boy 5/21/12

This little white boy with colored points in that rare color somewhere between chocolate and light blue still had a wet umbilical.  Mom got upset because when all the cows came in for their bale this little guy got mixed up and couldn't find mommy.  She soon cut him out and calmed him.

#2 Tierra has large Heifer 5/16/12

Herd matriarch @2 had large white heifer.  She has chocolate points and stockings just like her mom.  She is already trying to tear around with the other calves even though she is still pretty wobbly.  She was trying to get out of the heat- 65 degrees.

Mini Cow #7 has large heifer

My smallest Galloway #7 dropped a large white heifer that was very friendly.  She has dun points and stockings with some color on her crown.

May first #8 delivers a white calf of yet-to-be-determined gender.  It is a boy!

This guy was slaughtered 10/7/13 weighing 1154 pounds.  Somehow had false horns.
