Calves

 
 

This beautiful pair of paint bulls shows the difference in color of paints. Both of these bulls will turn black & white in a few weeks, even though one was born gray & white and the other red & white. Both are going to be super colorful. The bigger one was born May 16, 2014 and is named Sir Charles. The smaller one was born June 13, 2014
and is named Sir Patrick II.
Born June 26, 2014, this heifer calf is a Diablo daughter. Her mother has produced some of the best zebu cows in my herd.
 
No, these two heifers are not sisters. In fact, they aren't even closely related. The one on the left whose mother is Princess, is a yearling sired by Diablo. She is extremely tiny. The one on the right is a two year old whose mother is a Twister daughter, and she was sired by Bodacious.
Born May 16th, this 2014 calf is outrageously colored with a huge hump already.  He was born very lively to Ebony and was nursing in minutes.  His name is Sir Charles and he might be a keeper (we'll see). He will no doubt be black & white in a couple of months.
 
#27 had a nice heifer calf on May 31, 2014. She is a Twister daughter, and of course Diablo is the sire of the calf. She's yellow now, so we'll see what color she ends up being.
This is DeeDee's first calf.  Born May 6th, she's a very tiny 17" heifer. She's going to remain very small, since her parents are so small.
 
 Another paint calf fresh out of the oven. This bull  will be black & white in a few weeks without a doubt.  Born June 13, 2014 this colorful bull calf is #78, named Sir Patrick II. Friday the 13th was a lucky day for me.
This beautiful calf was born May 16th, 2013. She is very tiny like her mother, super colorful, and a heifer! Although her ear hides it in this photo, she has a large hump for a heifer. In a few weeks Bella will turn black & white. She was sired by Diablo of course.  Sold! Living in Wisconsin.
 
Born June 12, 2013 to the first calf heifer Princess, this little girl was up nursing in minutes, and was running around within the hour! She's going to be colored very loud and will no doubt be black & white in a few weeks.  She is extremely tiny.
This pair of heifers, born a month apart, are what I strive for. They are both very small and just gorgeous. 71 on the left is already turning black, and I see some black beginning on the forehead of 72 also.  When I wean them, I will break them to lead, simply to they become friendly and easy to handle.
 
Talk about a variety of color! The heifer on the left is the most colorful of the year and one of the smallest. She will be black & white when she finishes coloring out.
The yellow bull on the right is an unusual color. He won't stay that color I'm sure, but not sure what color he will be after he sheds.
This little girl is very tiny. She will probably not keep the red color, but she's gorgeous regardless of what color she matures. Being a Sir Chief grand daughter, so she will no doubt be a looker! Her sire is Diablo.  Sold! Living in Florida.
