A Secret update



We now realize Secret lost part of her tail switch in the freeze that got the ends of her ears.  We don't care, we love her anyhow. 

I was petting her today and realized that handfuls of dead winter hair were coming off, so I got the soft brush I use on the horses and relieved her of a lot of her old winter coat.  She loved it.  She leads well.  She doesn't get milk any more, but eats plenty of rich pasture by day and calf feed by night. 

Although she seems content, I would love to have another calf to run with her for company.  Not another Jersey heifer, I can't afford that.  But maybe a dairy breed steer.  I'm going to keep my eyes and ears open.

Just for comparison, here's a Jersey calf with normal ears:

Awwww, she's so sweet-looking.   Look at all that thick lush greenery, wish my yard looked like that!  (but then I'd have to be out mowin' already).    Judy

I think her ears are cute! Kinda like teddy-bear ears! She's a dollbaby, that's for sure. And she's getting big!

Short tail, shorter ears, she is still adorable.  And growing fast!

I think Secret is beautiful. I love her color. John cuts off the tip on one ear so he can tell from a distance which ones have been vacinated. Paula
