Calving started today when Charlotte had baby Sophia. Charlotte is a Devon cow, the breed originated in Devon, England and is distinctive for it’s ruby red color.
When we got the Devons and had to choose names for them we used British queens for the cows and towns in Devon for the bulls. So we added Plymouth, Dartmouth, Elizabeth, Victoria, her calf Alice and Charlotte to our herd. When it’s time to name their babies we borrow the royal princes and princesses names.
Charlotte is a terrific mom, Sophia is off to a good start and we look forward to having Sophia’s daughters join our herd.
