Many of you remember last summer when we had a sweet little red heifer calf born.
Because we couldn't think of a name for her, all of you lovely readers chimed in with dozens of suggestions. We finally chose "Lucy" since, of course, she's a red-head.
Lucy is now seven months old and darling.
True to the nature of calves, she's become quite an escape artist.
I often see her where she shouldn't be. She never wanders far, though, so we're not worried.
She's become my frequent companion in the barn, where she gorges undisturbed on hay. As a result, she's fat as a butterball.
Look at that belly!
Unlike the other animals who use the awning for shelter, little Lucy uses the whole barn.
Her coloration certainly makes her stand out. I don't think we've ever had such a red heifer.
No special point to this post, just thought you might like to see some cute pix.
