Clementine the bull calf and his No Name cousin... Please help!


So up there in the center, looking right at you is Clementine, our little baby bull calf.  Isn't he a doll? In front of him is his cousin, Little Lange.  To his left is his best buddy and cousin. 



Here is a better picture of Clementine's cousin.  He's a doll, too.  The only problem is we don't have a name for him.  Please....  if you can think of a name for this No Name bull calf we would love to hear. 

We are completely out of names.... 

Thank you and have a great week!

Gayle the social butterfly. I mean cow.



"Gayle just hears the word GO and she's grabbing her purse" -Betty B.(my grandmother, aka "Nanny")

I believe that many of you know that three of our longhorn heifers are named after the 3 women in my extended family that rule the roost:  Marsha, Gayle, and Kathy.

I was just being silly when I decided to name my cows after my mother, aunt, and cousin.  BUT - what I never realized was how they would take on similar traits of their namesakes.  I'm serious. 

Oh - and for the record, longhorns DO have personalities.  And like humans, they have unique personalities.  So this is Gayle and she is very social.  She will see a human from afar and will make a bee line to you to say hi.  I suppose some humans might get a bit nervous if a 1200 pound longhorn comes charging towards you.... But - we know it's just Gayle. And she's just social that way.
