Our Only Bull Calf on the Farm

20160212_153758

Batman is our only bull calf on the farm.  Here he is showing off his new hardware, his new nose ring, now he is an offical bull!  The reason for putting a ring in a bull’s nose is to control them when they are adults.  Just like any animal if we need to tend to a bull for health reasons or just to move them some where else on the farm they can get very mean.  We try our best to train Batman to behave by spending extra time with him, we also put a halter on him at times just so he will get use to it.  There is nothing like getting in a pin with a 2000lbs bull and getting ran over, so the nose ring will help from getting injuried when he is an adult, plus the lady cows dig it!

20 Baby Goats and Counting

We now have a total of 20 baby goats and a few more on the way.  If you did not recieve our notice sent out yesterday, bring the family and come pet the babies.  They love as much attention as they can get.  Next to our store we have built a pin so anyone can walk up and give them love.  Hope to see everyone soon!
