A blast from the past on this HumP Day! This newborn heifer by Mr MK Vernon 349/1 ( http://www.mckenneyfarms.com/vernon.html ) has become one of our best producers. She is the Dam to M-J Sienna Star that everyone seems to like so much.

The little HumP Day calf became the lead cow in our pasture and always lets us know if anything is amiss. She is Vernon’s Scarlet Liberal aka “Libby”. Yes! She turned Grey! But she almost always has a red calf.

This is our Libby. She is not the oldest cow in the herd, but she is the boss. She loves people and is always up for a rub. She is a retired show heifer. She will be calving again soon. But the best thing about her is that she knows her name. All we have to do is holler, “Liiiibbbbyyyy!” and even if the herd is nowhere in sight they will soon come running behind her to the gate. This comes in very handy!

This young bull was our “Shadey”. Don’t worry, he is alive and doing quite well at his new home several counties south of here. His new family will have him as their new F-1 herd sire. We met the buyers while we were showing in Houston and delivered Shadey to them on our way home from the show.

Last week I was down in that area again for some appointments and I couldn’t resist driving by to check on Shadey. In fact I drove by three times!-I’m sorta obsessive that way. But I wanted to see how he was doing and adjusting to his new home. He seemed to be doing great and I felt a little guilty on one drive by when he recognized my pickup and made his way to the fenceline to see if I had a treat for him-note to self:put a baggie of cubes in the door compartment for just such occasions. Anyway, it was like driving by and waving at the kid you just dropped off at daycare an hour earlier-not good for either of you!

Of course I had to snap a pic. He looks happy, huh?

So this HumP Day is in honor of M-J Shades of Christian Gray “Shadey”. May he love his new family as much as we loved him and may he always stand in green grass.
