The days of Chevy.... in a Chevy....
How Chevy got her name.... baby calf Chevy... she was moved when first born ended up separated from her mother. Than her mother didn't want her. Poor Chevy turned out to be an orphan. We could figure out which cow was her mom.

Your gonna regret selling her!

I ALMOST sold Seven. Glad I didn't. She will be along with a calf late spring early summer. Those bottle babies take a while to get up to size, but they sure grow on ya. BFFL!

Chevy sure looks happy. From the pics she is just now getting to the size to grow. Those bottle calves are slow. I raised three a couple years ago and they are a lot of work. You need to make this pic your Avatar.

Last load we took to the sale barn I cried. We took half went back with the other half. They kept looking at us knowing it wasn't right. It was so SAD!!! I had them all named, eating out of our hands, the kids hands, they were good cows. My daughter had fell slipped off side the cattle trailer the one cow was beside her, she step over to guard her. Them cows were barely weaned when we got them and our children was still in diapers they were baby's together. Angus may have the fancy papers better money... they aren't as friendly as some other breeds. Than again depends how they are raised. Just like "petbulls" or another other breed dog versus a mutt.
Love the name Seven. I want name our next mini that.... they thought seven wasn't girly enough.

Seems like use to I could load those old cows up and not think much of it. Now if they have been around a few years, been good cows I hate to see them go, but that is part of the business. That still doesn't help much.

Not even a little bit funny.
I'm sure the 2 of you have discussed why.
I'd be OK with you putting in 1 bid and only 1 bid (either the 2nd or 3rd) and hope it doesn't end up being the last bid. :)
