    Some of you may remember my first calf Rowen. She was born a bit premature and had a show start so we were bottle raising her. She's 2 and a half now, and we decided to try AI.

    My catch area. Discovered it needs a little improvement.

    No doubt you have a special bond with her. That sire is a beast! What are the birth weights that he throws?

    yes. She still runs to me every time I call her. She's very loving. I'm taking her to a Scottish Fest this fall for display. No doubt people will love seeing her.
    He throws small calves that grow quickly. I liked everything on their website. They are near Asheville. Lucky them, I love that town.

    ha. Yes. We just did it on Saturday so I've got a few weeks to wait and see.
    She needed a combing out and bath, but that will be for another day. :)
