New heifer

Isn’t cute? 😀 She doesn’t live with us yet because she’s only 10 days old but when she’s weaned, this fall, then she’ll come to live with us. She’s a dexter breed and that’s her mama in the one picture with her. She’s been disbudded so she won’t have horns like her mother. That was something that was important to me. I don’t want anymore horned animals. If you haven’t heard of dexters, they are a dual purpose breed and also are about 2/3 the size of other breeds. My plan is to raise her into a gentle milking family cow. 🙂
