Five years ago, my son Wesley, drug home 3, day old baby calves, he gave me the little black heifer and I named her Bessie. We bottle fed them for a long time. The bull, Latigo, grew into a beautiful, huge bull that we had for 4 years. Before we moved to New Mexico, we sold him and the other cow, but we kept Bessie and the calf she had on her.

But before we brought her to NM, she went looking for a mate and ended up in the neighbor's pasture with his cows and bull. Apparently she was bred and she popped out a beautiful little bull calf the day before yesterday! He's too cute to be a darn bull calf, but he's healthy and strong and just full of himself.

Here he is the first day, getting him some ninnie?...Bessie is such a GOOD Momma...I told her she was starting to look like an old milk cow tho, look at that udder!

Here's my last bottle baby, Weeble... ..he is such a sweetheart! We had him castrated this spring, so I could keep him as a pet. And what a big pet he is! Laughing

Awww, what breed is weeble? He's a real pretty color. Is he as sweet and loveable as Queen Annabel? He has such a pretty face:)

Bessie sure had a nice baby. That is great she is a good momma. Weeble is growing up so much. Thanks for the updates.

Thanks guys! Very Happy

Stacy, Weeble's granddaddy was a Blonde d' Aquitaine and was the same color as Weeble, he was HUGE! I don't know what his parents looked like.
The reason I know his Grandaddy, is that our friend, Caroline owned him. After a couple years of her loosing some calves and some cows having calving problems, we were able to talk her into selling him as a breed bull....he threw HUGE calves and he had gotten too big for the first time heifers .

Wesley and Jorge are going to go pick up our one eyed Angus bull, Willie, up at Muleshoe, TX tomorrow. The last time the guys went down to our old place in TX, they picked Willie up at Caroline's....they had to leave him at a vet clinic in Muleshoe, for his health cert. and trig test, before he could be brought into N M legally . I'm kinda anxious to see him again, the guys tell me that he has matured and isn't the scrawny, range bull I remember!

Stacy, I forgot to answer your other question....NO! Weeble is not quite as lovable as Annabelle and not nearly as sweet! Wink
