Suzie Cow & Chuck


Things out here are always changing.
We have gained a few new animals over the past weekend.
7 to be exact

My dad picked up the cutest Holstein calf 2 years ago.
He was at an auction on a dreary rainy day
and this little calf sold for next to nothing so he picked it up for me.
We loved on her for the first year but he took her back to AI (artificial inseminate) her.
We ran different cattle in the pastures last year but this past weekend he brought her back.
This is her….

Wow she has grown!!!
I bet you can’t guess her name!  (Thanks dad)
My 4 year old cowgirl calls her “Suzie Cow”.
Luckily it isn’t spelled like my name (Suzi).
I guess it was easier to give her a name then a number  :/ ?

She went down in the trailer on the trip here.  It was SO HARD to get her out and up!
Needless to say we had to use a tow strap and a 4-wheeler to pull her out of the trailer.
It was quite the ordeal! 
(I won’t go into much detail; I don’t need PETA hijacking my blog! Ha Ha)
But she is now doing great!!!!

Dad also brought up her calf.  Isn’t she adorable!
Did you see her ear tag???
Chuck……Yep that’s my dad’s name.
So this cute little lady is named Chuck!
We tried to give her a different name
but when her tag says Chuck you just have to go with it!

Since she is a Holstein she is a nurse cow for us!!!
She currently has 3 calves on her.
Their mommas were unable to provide enough milk for them.
They are all sweet little calve but I do have a favorite…shhhh
Isn’t he cute?
He is my favorite because he matched my little redheads! :)

Oh and we also have 2 little pigs Dad dropped off.
They are unnamed; I’m thinking Sausage and Pork Chop sound good tho! ;)

  3. Love them all!! :) We used to raise bottle calves when I was in high school and I sure miss those babies! Yours are too sweet! We also showed pigs and we always had one named Sausage or Bacon!! :)

  4. Aww, calves are so cute. But then they grow up and aren't so cute anymore. I think sausage and pork chop are great names! Pigs are one of my favorites :)

  5. When I was growing up we had 3 pigs...they all looked the same so we couldn't tell them apart. Their names were "Smell", "The", and "Bacon"! So I think Sausage and Pork Chop sound like great names! hahaha. And you're not a real rancher until you have to pull a cow out of a trailer with a tow strap! If they would just cooperate!
