We have been waiting for this calf for 2 months. Apparently our Highland Bull was not quite mature enough to breed when we got him. But he finally got it done.
She was born at 3 AM and immediately was standing.
She and her mom were moved into a pen with straw this morning to make sure her mother paid good attention to her and that she stayed warm.
She is a dark brown color with red undertones. You can see them best in her back legs.
Tom suggested we name her Bug. I thought it was a great name as that was the first name for the town of Sedro, and we had just visited the history museum this last week. Here is a Skagit River Journal article about it: http://www.skagitriverjournal.com (I so miss this journal; it was my favorite until Noel’s death).
So welcome to the world little Bug.
