Little Pearl is the youngest and still nursing. Her mom, Scarlett, is a good mother:

And all my cattle love to congregate around the bale feeder:

Gladys, Gracie's daughter, is my favorite calf. She loves grain so much that she's become quite tame, realizing that I am its source:

Another photo of Scarlett and Pearl, mother and daughter. I was taking photos in order to advertise the calves for sale:

This is Amy. She was undersized and underfed when she arrived here, with a too small head and an arched back. Look at her now. She's a lovely cow - and quite friendly too:

The salad bar:

Another shot of Scarlett and Pearl, this one with Rosella off to the right. Rosella was Scarlett's calf from last year:

Pearl and Scarlett again. These photos paid off, by the way, for Pearl has now been sold:

All my red ladies of the bovine persuasion:
