Then we got up yesterday morning to find that Belladonna had calved, a black polled heifer calf by Blueprint. She is a good strong calf and has stayed in the paddock with her mum. I am still thinking on this little one's name.
Then after pacing the paddock all afternoon Damita looked close to calving. It was bitterly cold outside and so she was moved into the barn. Our neighbours had their grandchildren visiting and they wanted to see a calf born, so around 7.30 pm with an audience of four adults and three children a bull calf was born. He is by Baunatal Magic Merlin and appears to be polled. Yeah!!! He will be named Hocus Pocus.
We have also named the other calves born earlier in the week.
The heifer calf out of Emerald Skye by Baunatal Kenny O'Shea will be Harleqin Cut
The heifer calf out of Bohemian Rhapsody by ET will be Hotwire
The bull calf out of Fleur de Lis by ET will be Harrison Ford.
Who will be next?? You will have to wait and see but my bet is Crakka Jakka
