A Little Announcement!

Yesterday, our cow gave birth to a healthy little bull calf! We are thankful to the Lord for this newest addition to the farm.He doesn't officially have a name yet, but we have been batting around a few suggestions.

Congrats Boyd's!

Seeing as how ya'll have a Bubba, the name Gump seems appropriate.

Looks good :D. What kind of cow is that? And what is it bred too? I am with Mike on the name. Ours dropped their calves this past fall, and they are getting bred again to a friend's angus bull. We are up to 7, and hopefully I will be expanding my hear soon. I need to get some more ground fenced however LOL!

Haha, I like Mike's name. So will this calf become next year's BBQ? We have two pregnant Jerseys due soon. Hope y'all have a great Christmas!

Hah! That sounds good, but I don't know the origin of it.

Her name is actually "38", but that was very close! :)

The answer to both of your questions is: Jersey. Wow! Y'all have quite a herd! Fenced ground is not as abundant as I'm convinced it should be.

Just a Family;
Yeah, it would've been fun if it had been born today!

Actually, we're probably going to keep this one for bull services.

Hah! Well, cows are supposed to have redneck names, especially down here.

The mama looks like she's got a tech of something else in her... I asked because she looks a little bit like a "Cracker Cow" as they call them down here. They are almost totally exclusive to Fla, so I thought seeing one that looked similar to a Cracker Cow but was in Bama was rare.

My suggestion comes from the movie Forrest Gump. The title character (a resident of Greenbow AL) has a buddy also from AL named Bubba, hence my suggestion.

She may very well be a mix. We bought her from an old hillbilly in North Alabama who had crammed about 20 mobile homes on about three acres. His barn where he milked the cows was an old school bus with the wheels taken off.

Ahhh. I thought as much, though I wasn't certain having never seen Forrest Gump.

How 'bout y'all name him Benning in honor of fort Benning where challenge was held. You could also name him Officer Phillips if you wanted to JK JK JK o_O . A late merry christmas and a happy new year.
