Here is the first two calves for the year! Welcome babies...these calves are from our new bull. Oddly enough the white speckled calf was the first born out of the two. Notice the stockiness of the newborn calf. The second born, the more fawn colored, has some legs that never end! Really excited to see the other babies from our pregnant mommas.
Thank you for checking out the blog today. I hope you have a great day.
Well we finally have a concrete idea of where we are going to be stationed next and it's in the states. We will be able to actually handle our cows and start building our house on the land. It looks like we will be stationed at Hurlburt Field. From what I have heard it's a really nice base. Why wouldn't it be? It's right on the ocean!!! I know this lady could use a good tan. We will be a little ways away from Thayer but we won't be countries away. Pretty excited about this new adventure. Stay tuned for more on the farm
We are still currently stationed here in Japan, but my mother and mil just visited and returned back to the states. From what I have heard fall is on its way to the farm. I know here in Japan it started off with a roar with Typhoon Jelewat. All the babies were born and are growing in abundance. I will have to post some of the newer pictures of the calves. From the last count we had all bulls minus one heifer. All the bulls have been banded and we are just holding off until it's time to sell them. If you are interested in purchasing the heifer we will add photos soon, just contact us.
Well i'm proud to say that we have a bustling five calves on the farm!!! We are awaiting one more to grace us with their presence. It's pretty exciting that all the moms are delivering with no problems. I'll be posting some new pictures of the babies. We have yet to see what the new calves are but can't wait to see them grow and flourish. Most of all the calves will be for sale once they are old enough. We will let you guys know about the sexes once we have been able to check them out. Most of the bulls, unless told ahead of times we will turn into steers.
My name is Shayna Poole and I have started this page and blog to show our life on the farm. I married my husband on 2008 and have been living off the land with our heritage breed cattle. We are currently stationed overseas at Yokota Airbase, Japan and we have friends helping us with ensuring the herd stays strong. We have two beautifully crazy kids that we can't wait to share the farming lifestyle with.
