    This weekend we went to pick up the registered Angus heifers we bought for the boys. My oldest son will be 8 in July, but has to wait until next year to start 4-H but the opportunity came along so we decided to go for it. His heifer, Harriet, is due to have a calf May 6. My younger sons heifer is just a yearling and her name is Midnight Bloomer. These heifers are from a friend of mines 4-H herd, so hopefully they will be a good start for the boys.

    Oh how cool. They're gorgeous, Sara. I wish my parents would have bought me a cow when I was younger, cows we didnt eat anyways. [​IMG]

    I know what you mean, my parent's didn't buy me cows either. They did get me sheep, but I always wanted cattle. I'm thrilled to be able to provide the opportunity to my boys [​IMG]

    One just turned one, and the other just two. They are half sisters. They aren't quite as big as our other cattle.
