Tuesday Update

Introducing: SCRUMPY!!




Named for the terrific woman over at Scrumpy Baker's blog!

Born early this morning, the Bag Lady had to wait until there was a little more daylight to take a picture, and even then, with the cloud cover, the flash went off!

Here is a really short video clip of how bouncy and energetic she is, much like who she is named for...

Hilary - there is quite a lot of cuteness around here now!

Missicat - it never ceases to amaze me how they get up and get moving so fast!

Scrumpy's Baker said...

Oh I'm so excited! Thanks so much Bag Lady! What a cute little Scrump!

Scrumpy is so cute and bouncy. What a happy calf!

the Bag Lady said...

SB - glad you like her! She's a go-getter.

dfLeah -she does seem pretty happy...might be it was getting kinda cramped in there!

Emily said...

Those things sure are hoppy! I guess I would be too if I was finally out in the open and able to stretch out!

I was watching a show last night that showed cows giving birth and how the ranchers help them; it was interesting to see how they just kinda pull the cow out and then let momma lick it clean. I thought it was cute!

the Bag Lady said...

Emily - I'm curious - would you have watched that program if it wasn't for this blog?
I have often thought about video taping the actual birth, but thought it might be too much for some people to watch....

Aww How adorable. Scrumpy is a perfect name. :)

the Bag Lady said...

Missicat!! That's so exciting!! Not sure if I have any tips or not, but make sure you give me the address so I can come and check it out!!!!

Maggie - Welcome! Glad you like the name...she's a wonderful little calf!

Missicat said...

Hi - unfortunately I won't have pics of baby animals, but hopefully won't put anyone to sleep :-)

MizFit said...

SO CUTE.

when do we get the Scrumpy in bikini shot?

Here's the link:

Any tips would be appreciated...

the Bag Lady said...

Missicat - I'm coming right over!!

Mizfit -when ever you Texas girls get here to put the bikini on the calf....

Scrumpy's Baker said...

Seeing as I can barely get my DOG to wear a t-shirt, I'm thinking getting a cow into a bathing suit isn't going to work too well. Of course, Miz Fit does have the arms of a goddess....

Reb said...

I love the clips that show how bouncy they are. So cute.

Sagan Morrow said...

Such a little cutie!

the Bag Lady said...

SB - if anyone can get a calf into a bikini, it'll be you and Mizfit! :)

Reb - it's hard to get them to bounce on command!!

Sagan - I know - you should see all the pictures and videos I take that I don't put on the blog!!

Crabby McSlacker said...

Welcome Scrumpy!!!

And what's that, a Missicat blog??

Bag Lady, you truly are an inspiration to so many.

Must go take a look!

Geosomin said...

Wow...what a bouncy little cow.
If you can get a bikini on it I will bake you a cake...and hand deliver it when I am in the area :)

the Bag Lady said...

Crabby, you made the Bag Lady blush...


Geo - Ooh, cake!!! Will get to work on putting a bikini on that calf!
