Our fourth Murray Grey calf was born Saturday. :) Cayenne picked the warmest day this week to have her darling little bull calf. We had just moved Cayenne and Penelope up to the top pens to keep a closer eye on them as their due dates were getting closer. Cayenne gave us a pleasant surprise when she calved a few days early with no problems at all.
The little guy was having a few difficulties deciding which end of momma would give him some nourishment, so he got a little help from the boss.
Within just a couple of hours, he was up trying to run and buck and exploring the world... as long as momma wasn't too far away!
So far we have two FB Murray Grey heifers and two bull calves, all healthy and born without any problems. We are expecting several more in the next few weeks!
Russell Ranch is located in beautiful NE Oklahoma, just a few miles from the Illinois river in Green Country. There are lovely rolling hills, lots of wonderful lakes and rivers, and forests full of wildlife.
