Your cowboy is brave doing the tagging all by himself. Wow! My uncles tend to wait until the calves are a month old and then chase them down on horses, and rope the poor little things, have 2 full grown men sit on it, while someone else tags it. Your cowboys is doing great, handling this all by himself!I love the surprises too! My grandmother's ranch is right next to a ranch that runs those big white Charolais, and my uncles run the black Angus, so as you can imagine when the sneaky cows get out, sometimes come spring they have a little white or golden colored calf. Those are everybody's favorite!Wow, this is getting long! But, I have to tell you, my favorite posts of yours are the ones about your ranch, with all the cool pictures:)Faye
Mary:When I saw this blogger headline: “Accessorize Your Calf” I expected to see a selection of leather bands with feathers and beads dangling down designed to be tired between the knee and the ankle. I haven’t seen them since the ‘60’s. Did you have hippies in Nebraska back then? Vince
You thought I was gonna talk about ankle bracelets, Vince?I could do that tomrrow. :)
Faye, the little charlois are pure white, like little lambs when they're born. I love it when we get one of those.
Hi Mary:I afraid my comment didn’t make any sense. Some of the hippie girls at UC in the 60’s would wear a leather band around their calf to which dangled down feathers and/or beads. Of course, this was at the same time they were painting flowers on their faces. I don’t think that accessorizing one’s calf ever caught on. But your post did remind me of these wonderful, eclectic days.Vince
