Amy Up Close and Personal

To make it easier to sort thru the calves, I went out this morning and shot them.  With the camera, of course.

First off the 'roll' is Amy, aka Morgan Rivers Amulet.  DOB 15 March, BW 72#.  Long and elegant, loves to pose.  Sire:  Morgan Rivers Talisman (Tali), by JB Prized out of JB Ruffian.  Dam, Morgan Rivers Yankee Lady (Joy), by Warook Zenda (AI) out of HD Vanya 236V (LeeLu).  She will get her Bangs and tattoo at weaning in mid September.

When it comes to taking pictures of cows, my pal Bonnie of JB Ranch Murray Greys is the real pro.  I try, but trust me - these are the best I can do, which is nowhere near as good as Bonnie does with cow pictures.  She seems to know how to get them in the right pose to show them off to their best, and to keep their ears up, tails down, feet in the right place AND at the same time she is just snapping away, like she was born doing this.  Me, well, you can see the results.  Amy is not knock kneed, altho it looks that way in the second picture, nor is she short back and stubby, like the third picture (and she's a bit fuzzy along the topline as well, and not uniformly fuzzy either)

Amy is SOLD

Amy was weaned on 30 August at 510#
