The weather was nice a couple days after he was born so he was outside in the corral getting some sun and try get more steady on his legs.
Festus is the first calf of Little Gabby and he was caught nursing then had to look away as he was busted. His father is Dapper Dan.
With warm sunshine and a full tummy of milk Festus curls up with Gabby for a short nap. Born at 23 inches and we are now waiting on the results of the DNA testing to determine his genetics. We will have them listed as soon as we get them.
A perfect opportunity presented to get a good picture of Gabby and Festus together. A great mother son photo.
Playing in the barn with the other bottle calves, of course he is the smallest, Festus climbs up on the straw bale to be the big boy in the group.
Now that the bottle club are big enough and eating grass they are turned out into a portion of the pasture. This is the end of May and the grass is already taller than they are. Makes for some good hide-and-seek. It will be more than they can eat for sure.
