I know, I know, she's not a goat, but she thinks she is since she was raised with them!  She had her first baby yesterday!  Her name is Lily 1/2 Angus 1/2 Jersey.  Now I have plenty of colostrum if I need it when the goat kids come next month.

Congrats on your little Lily. Good job Rosie!

Awwww....I adore baby calves.  And to have a heifer calf on her first freshening, that's even more awesome!  I love and adore the Jerseys, they are the gentlest of all the breeds of cattle.  Our first Jersey was given to my Son at 6 weeks old and the calf was 2 days old.  I was told by the farmer that gave her to him that for every calf she had that we sold, the proceeds were to go into his college fund.  We fell in love with that calf.  Named her "Fawn".  What a hoot she was.  She would open our back door and come into the house and before you knew it, you had this baby calf cutting shines through the house as we tried to get her to go back outdoors.  Such a smart baby she was.  Followed us every where.  We kept her until the day she passed away at 17 yrs old.  It was so nice to go out and milk her and have fresh milk on the table.  The year I had my back surgery I couldn't milk for several months.  So we let her nurse her calf, and bought another calf to put on her and she adopted that calf within a few hours and nursed it and raised it as well as her own.

You're gonna love this baby, and her name fits her so well.  I'm so happy for you.  Now you'll have all the milk you could ever want, and great tasting milk no less.  Congratulations.  Can't wait to see more pictures of her as she grows up.

Adorable, I just love babies, the farm next door always has 4 babies and I just love it when they play, which is a lot less than baby goats, but still fun to watch.
