Welcome to Astrid

Dawn surprised us on Friday morning with the arrival of her Tali daughter Astrid.  While Roar might have the next to tiniest ears ever seen on a bull (and thankfully, he rarely passes that along), Tali contributes two things to his offspring - ultra fast up and nursing (and running) and the biggest ears known to cowdom.  Dawn lost her Tali daughter last year and fostered Scooby the Holstein steer (now safely tucked in the freezer), but this year she had no problems at all, and little Astrid was hard to catch to weigh.  I sure hope she grows into those ears or someone's gonna mistake her for a deer!

Aren't those ears a hoot?
