Rawlings Damita has presented us with a very masculine looking black bull calf by Belle Fourche Macintosh, he is thick, has a very bull like head and a scrotum which had testicles descended when he hit the ground. He is easily the best calf that Damita has produced, time will tell.
This morning we had a red bull calf from Rawlings Hey Jude by KP Heir Apparent, he was only just born at 7am wet and cold, so I dried him off with a towel and he was up feeding. Another calf by Belle Fourche Macintosh has arrived overnight with Rawlings Gelato giving us a sweet red heifer, she will be named Kandy.
It is interesting to note that all of the bull calves have been born early and the heifers are late. Gypsy was 3 days early, Delta's calf was 4 days early, as was Damita's, and Hey Jude's is a week early. Gelato was 5 days late, Hidden Gem was 4 days late and Dame Ruby was 1 day over.
I have a couple of others due any day, lets see what we get. Stay tuned.
