Well, well, well, April-the-Giraffe’s baby was finally born. Have y’all watched the live video for the past month? I popped in from time to time but didn’t have enough time to watch too much. But now they’re having folks submit suggestions for the baby’s name. Guess what – this pretty girl was born on that same day too!!
Howzabout a little fun? I’ll let one of you name the new calf! This heifer was born while we were away. So with her legs already firmly beneath her we were not able to officially weigh her. But OMGosh she’s so beautiful!!
What say you – what’s a good name for her?
She’s a beauty for sure! I’ll have to pop over to fb and put a name in.
I hope you will Cecilia – I’d love to have everyone’s suggestions! The link to the FB naming post is right here in this article so you don’t have to look for it. C’mon down! ~TxH~
She is a beauty, we had black angus. A neighbor’s white faced bull did some fertilizing and they made some pretty calves too. I’m assuming that you have already used Navigators Pride. I know after while you do run out of names. I would call her sugar. Don’t know why is just seem to fit her for me. Hope someone comes up with a good name for her.
Black baldies do very well here to Tonia. As a matter of fact we purchased 2 registered Angus heifers so we can either A.I. them and have them calve registrable Angus calves or let our bull breed them & let them calve F1 Baldies. Both do well in this area! ~TxH~
What a’ Beauty’ she is.
Sorry Tammy but I don’t do facebook otherwise I would add a few names to your facebook page
was just wondering; do you just put numbers on their ear tags or do you also put their name on ear tag?
Their ear tags contain our ranch ID & their herd ID number and date of birth. The first numbers of their herd ID belong to their dam showing whom the calf belongs to. The second number is their calf order to their dam. So this heifer #167-5 is the fifth calf that her dam #167 has had, so it also helps us gauge the age of the dam at a glance. The ear tags are placed on one side for heifers, the other side for bulls so we can tell at a glance even in tall grass which gender we’re looking at when we’re checking on calves. Our tagging system has worked out well for us! ~TxH~
