On Sunday while I was at a Show Preparation workshop in Scottsdale, Rawlings Absolute Gem, our dam of our best line of cattle, has again given us another red polled heifer. A full sister to Delta Blue, Emerald Skye and Faberge. She will be known as Hidden Gem, as she has a habit of getting right into the long grass and hiding from us.
Sunday evening Delta Blue was off on her own and I thought she looked close, in the early morning on Monday she presented us with the most chunky, wide and gorgeous looking black bull by Baunatal Magic Merlin. We have named him Hey Presto, but unfortuantley he has horns but his structure appears at this early stage worth growing him on.
Then yesterday afternoon our beautiful Grade 3 Criss Cross has delivered a polled black heifer calf by Rawlings Blueprint. She too shows great potential upon looking at her this morning. I am thinking High Hope might be a good name for her.
And as I am typing I think Emerald Skye is in labour she has her tail out and stomped across the paddock before throwing herself on the ground, so another calf shortly.
