meet baby Yore

Another new baby Jersey was born yesterday to Mama Emma. I named him Yore, not because he’s harmless and sweet like Eeyore (who is surprisingly good at Pooh-sticks), and not because Yore means
yesteryear, time past, and especially long past as in Heritage Jersey, the breed I’m big on because they’re so small. I named him Yore because when I rolled him/her over to find out we’d just had our third GUY in a row (we want girls—they give milk), I said …


“You’re kidding.”

    Too funny Mary Jane, but I have to say, girl or boy he sure is CUTE!!!!! Are you expecting any more Jersey babies? Hope you get at least ONE girl from the bunch.

  2. Terry Steinmetz says:

    What’s not to love in the little guy? And I love the name.

  3. Winnie Nielsen says:

    The cutest baby boy! That is the thing about babies, you don’t get to pick what you want. However, he looks like great breeding stock for the future.

    What a cutie! I certainly understand wanting a girl! We’re happy that our last two Longhorn calves were girls! We have three steers, different ages and sizes, “in line” for the freezer.

    Oh, he is BEAUTIFUL! He looks like he needs nose kisses… And Mama with the dark face is truly gorgeous!
