Piercings - On the Farm???

I guess I should bring everyone up to date on what has been happening on the farm. Last Saturday, October 11, 2008, Daisy finally had her calf. Justin was dearly hoping for a little heifer but a week out from her due date didn't give him much chances for that to happen. Instead he now has "Lightning McQueen".

Justin is having a little heart-to-heart talk with Daisy about her continually throwing him bull calves instead of a heifer once in awhile.

Justin re-checking Lightning to make sure we didn't make any mistakes. Yep - he is still a little boy.

Since then, we decided to get more calves to resell so last night we went and picked up 5 more!!! After the morning's milking, instead of taking out one bottle for Lightning, Justin had a whole rack full!

Doesn't he look like the milk man?? LOL

Three new hungry mouths are ready for breakfast to be served!

The one in front has already had his bottle and now he is trying to steal the bottle away from his "pen mate".

Isn't he just a doll???

Rowdy - wondering when we are serving up breakfast.

You are probably asking yourself, "What does this have to do with piercings?" Every calf needs to be identified and we do this by placing a cute little yellow tag in there ear, so this morning Justin decided Lightning need to be adorned with his special yellow tag.

READY, SET, ......

GO!!! Yowzer - that smarts!!

Justin inspects the tag. Not perfect but it will do.

"Hey - don't I get another bottle after getting my ear pierced?"

Thanks for stopping by the farm today! Check back soon to see who I got to spend part of an afternoon with....
