young bull calf born 6 Feb. 2014

This is our first calf of the season here at Greenfamily Ranch.  It was born on the 6th of Feb. in one of the worst snow and freezing rain storms in recent memory.  I first built a fire for the poor little fella and then decided to make a temporary shelter for it in the trees.  The picture was taken the following day, after building the shelter.  ( see how content and dry he looks).  We have not name this young bull yet but have a few in mind.

  1. How about the name Rufus? First name I thought of when I saw his picture.

    • I like the name Steve but I’m holding back on a name starting with ‘R’ due to the fact that the American Highland Cattle Assoc. Designates a letter each year for names of calves born that year. This year the letter is ‘C’. I have thought about Columbus. It all depends on weather I decide to register him as a bull. If he is going into the meat program, it really doesn’t matter what I name him. Thanks for the input.
