We name our cows. It is a lot more fun, easier to remember and more personable then just relying on numbers. We get some crazy names though; like, Beezus, Jojo, and PomPom. By naming our cows it also gives a good way to keep track of the relationships between cows, since we always name the calf something that is similar (in some way) to the mother's name. For example, we have a whole family tree named after different kinds of soda. I don't know where it started, but the most recent soda addition was Fanta and her mother's name was Pepsi. We have also had Dew, Coke, Sprite (and more... who would all be related to Fanta in some way). Also, Anya just had a calf who we named Tanya. Viola had a calf we named Vronica. Minny had a calf we named Mickey and so, on and so forth. Sometimes you can track the names for several generations. Like Tickle had Giggle and Giggle had Chuckle. If you are here when a calf is born you will get to help in the fun of picking out names! Sometimes we get kind of creative.... :)
Hello, if you are a follower of this blog you will remember that Angela was doing the blogs. Well, things have gotten busy for her and so Stan, her dad, is filling in for now. I am not as techno savy as her so I am not sure how this will work but I am going to try and post on a hopefully regular basis.
