    Well, it's been about 5 years since I sold off my few head of Dexter cows and their calves to buy a camper. It was with the understanding that when they had heifer calves I'd get 2 back. Well, just when I was about to give up, ...April 16th brought a little heifer calf my way. (And just in time too, I was making plans to go buy one in Missouri in the next few weeks!) I have not seen her yet, but she is being handeled daily and doing well. Due to the circumstances, I feel I MUST call her "IRiS" unless anyone else can think of something better... NOTE: This is my personal cow, I'm still looking for a Jersey calf for the Historic Farm.

    Congratulations!

    I've gotten two Dexter calves so far this year, both bulls. Maybe the next two will be heifers like yours.
