Ladybell did it again!  This is the third heifer in a row, one of each color.  And she was born on Good Friday, which happened to also be big sister Iris’ birthday.

Bunny is a very nicely built dun girl, with a long, deep body, and a nice, quiet temperament.  Her udder has a nice level floor & good attachments, and is holding up well, into her third lactation.  She hasn’t been trained to milk, but has more than enough for her calf this year.  Bunny is halter trained & easy to manage.

I hate to see my last & favorite Ladybell daughter leave, but Bunny has given us a nice replacement heifer, Buttercup, so it’s time for Bunny to go to a new home.  She tested negative for Johnes’, BVD, BLV & neospora, and sells bred to Schmoozer for an early June calf.

The udder photos below are from Bunny’s first lactation.
