Our rotund Herefords have made a comeback! Even weanling Anna is a barrel with four feet. She gave me a dirty look when I told her she needed to step away from the feeder the other day, then she asked me for an apple. Sadie here should have a Murphy baby on board. It would not hurt my feelings for it to be a heifer, although Gillespie Ranch would sure like it another BWF bull to replace Patches. We also look forward to Sadie’s daughter, Rosie, having her first calf. She has turned into a fine heifer, but the jury is always out until she calves and cares for her own baby.
The boys in Montana all seem to be getting along in their new surroundings. Raptor got off to a rough start, but he has shaken off his homesickness and gaining again. Stay tuned to GBRanch,org and our Facebook page. We kept an Exceed and a Fate son for our own use and are really pleased with their looks and dispositions.
The calves are coming and so are days of no sleep, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
