We had two huge things happen today for our farm. At 7am, we were on the road to pick up an Amish man (more on that tomorrow). At 8:15am, we were on our way north, and after a nine hour round trip, we came home with this guy:
His current name is Chip (which may change once we get to know his personality), and he’s a Murray Grey/Angus cross bull. He’s the herd sire for our next venture: pastured raised grass-fed beef!
He was born in September and is a real cuddle bug. He loves having his back scratched with a hairbrush!
He wasn’t too sure about stepping off the hay onto the black mats to get out of the trailer, but once he saw Ted wasn’t falling into a black abyss, he followed Ted right out and through the pasture.
He made a beeline for the girls who made a beeline for the top of the hill and the new gate! They’re all separated for now, but it looks like they’ll be together soon!
