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.

"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.
