Farm Wife ~~ Twins

We had another set of twin calves last week; Angus heifers. This time the cow took both, but we brought them home to the barn to make sure they kept up with her the first days of their lives and she can be fed grain to help her give more milk. The picture makes one look larger than the other, but actually they are about the same.
A few days from now I plan to start making grain available to them. It's sweet how close they stay together.


  1. Awwww... those are precious, Charlotte! Nothing better than farm babies....

  2. Awww. Isn't that sweet? Glad it wasn't bad weather.

  3. Awww, What an adorable set of twins. I'm so glad you took these precious photos of them. Your Calves are so snugly and sweet. :)

  4. Precious - brings back memories of when my youngest moved back to the country 35 years ago. I bottle fed 5 calves and when finally sold
    had 16 - all by myself.
    Chopping ice with a fence post - how in the world did I do it.
    I enjoyed bottle feeding my first calves. I treated them like babies.
    Charlotte all of this by myself.
    Where has time gone.
    Then I was young now I am old...

  5. I think they are just darling. How I still miss farm life!

  6. Oh twins! Congratulations Charlotte.

  7. They are sweet. Happy to see they are healthy too!

  8. Love it! As you might imagine I have a fondness for twin anythings : )
