    M&M's new calf. He is a Jersey/Holstien. The birth was easy and she took right to motherhood. He is sold already and will be going to his new home next week. He was born in the back pasture. Here he is on his way to the milk barn. He is just dry in this pic. He was heavier than he looked! :rolleyes:

    He's a cutie - and looks like quite a good workout!

    Is he just sticking his tounge out or is he sow mouthed? :p

    Very cute looks nice and healthy. How much did he weigh in at?

    He is sticking his tongue out. He wasn't thrilled with my method of transport...... :rolleyes:
    He weighed in roughly around 75#-80#. As soon as I saw the size of those feet and nose, I *knew* it was a bull calf.

    Actually he went against the norm of all the other bull calves I have hauled like that...he didn't pee down my back...he pooped on my elbow! :p
