Abby and Asher

Mary and Martha had a lovely matched pair of calves on the 27th and 28th of May.  Abby, behind, is Mary's second calf and a definate keeper.  She has nice black points and four well-spaced teats, traits that we can attribute to her sire.  Asher, Martha's first born, is a real live-wire with a great personality.  Unfortunatly, he has six teats like his mother which, in my mind, disqualifies him as a future herd sire to sell.  He's been banded and will stay with the herd until he's ready to butcher.
