Patticake cleaning her new baby
And it's a heifer! Frazier Creek Patticake's little girl was born October 29th in the middle of a lovely warm fall afternoon.
Her sire is Frazier Creek Garrett from Frazier Creek Ranch in Rattan, OK
Patticake had a normal and uneventful labor - thank goodness! and is very proud of her new daughter. :) Both momma and baby are doing well. :)
We hope to have many more Murray Grey babies on the ground in the next year.
FYI - We are in search of any interested young people that are heavily involved in 4H or FFA that are looking for quality show calves. Please contact us if you may be looking for a unique and easy to handle show calf that present well in the show ring. To learn more about the Murray Grey breed, please look over our MG page. Murray Grey cattle are a great breed. :)
Although we have switched to Murray Grey cattle, we kept a few of our 'old reliable' cows. Sue had our first calf of the year yesterday and it's a darling little girl. We've already had our hands on her and wanted to share some pictures. We named her Misty.... after a very good friend :) and because of her
color. She's a beautiful misty grey/chocolate brown calf out of Cotton, one of our Murray Grey bulls, and a black white-faced cow. Momma is very proud of her!
We have been super busy trying to get everything done that needs to be done this time of year... getting the garden planted, mowing the yard, taking care of the critters (as usual), planting trees around the perimeter of the place, and a dozen other chores. But we always find some time to go out each day, just to visit and enjoy the wonderful friends we have with the horses, cows, goats, and dogs. Hope that you enjoy some pictures taken this week... :)
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.
