Had 2 more heifer calves yesterday. I didn't get to see them until today. I saw the first one and I first thought she was blind. But she can see just fine. They are almost clear ice blue.

I found the second one laying in some brush. I walked up just to take a picture. That crazy witch took off running. I followed her in the truck,just to take a picture. She did finally stop long enough...

If I had any sense at all I would load her and sell her. She is very high strung and just a whole day old. Imagine what she will be like in 6 months.

Maybe she will figure out all the running and all is unneccessary and calm down with time. I could get a lot of money for that blue eyed beauty. Have a standing order from a lady who likes unique looking calves for her collection of lawn ornaments. The more unique the better.

I have seen this before. Their eyes will change to brown over time.
Sure will...we had a Simm Cross heifer that had blue eyes just like her's but now they are "'normal"

Thanks all,these I've been waiting on. I will have 3 out of this one bull. I was going to sell him,because we thought he wasn't doing his job. Come to find out I got my dates wrong on him. He was to young.
This bull is not a overly big or any thing maybe 1000- 1100 lbs. He weighed 60 lbs when he was born. I have decided to keep him for a heifer bull. I like the size of these calves and the(first time) cows didn't have any problems.
I have had several with blue eyes. This heifer eyes are different,almost like white inside of them. I do know they are cool.
Beefy in my younger years I could keep up with a fire cracker :lol:

Nice calves Joy. I love my beefmasters, especially the color they bring to life. Unfortunately, though, I have to breed mine to the Angus plus bull, so that they'll all throw black calves. I may not like it, but black does sell better. So why not have some variety when making black?

I know I was talking to Rick the other night about getting a black bull. I hate to do it ,but what else can ya do.Altough,the other night at the sale. Rick even noticed that herefords were selling just as good as angus were. I don't know what was up with that. They were nice fat steers.
I'm sure I will ship her bigbull,if she doesn't settle. I'm to dog gone old to fight with her.

Joy,
I have a cow that was just as wild as yours as a young calf, her mother is a Peeler type Longhorn, big, beefy type but she is really skittish. You can't touch her. So I figured this calf would be just as skittish as her mama. She grew up to be probably the gentlest in the herd. I can go out in the pasture, the woods, wherever she is and just lay my hands on her, pet her. She's like a big dog. Your heifer may gentle down. Of course when we wean our calves we always put them in a corral and start giving them hay and grain. It doesn't take long for them to get used to the feed bucket and start following us around.
