The herd is expanding!

This past summer Ian did some work for a man and was paid with a beef heifer. She was a bred beef heifer which makes her all the more valuable.
This morning his herd of beef animals expanded to two! Silver gave birth to a calf. I couldn't get close enough to the calf to see what it was but she did pose for a picture or two.
Then when the photo session was over Silver let me know is no uncertain terms to go away and let her calf alone. So I did!

Matthew went out to look this afternoon, Oreo is a bull. Guess that means that in a week or so he will become a steer.
