A Calf Named Bug

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.
