This is a picture of Stephen's new calf, Maverick. She is about as close to a maverick as anything would be these days.
Yesterday some guys who work for the man that owns property adjoining ours came to the house saying that we had a calf over on their property. So Stephen went to check it out. He told them that he didn't think it was ours, but they insisted it was. Stephen thinks that it is a calf that got left over there when they rounded up all their cows a few weeks ago, and they didn't want to deal with it. Poor thing has been over there without a mommy for milk. So she got put on one of the milk cows to eat.
Stephen had all kinds of fun chasing it down and catching it to bring it home. He didn't take a rope with him, because he knew it wasn't ours, so had to catch it by hand.
So anyways, a free beef cow. Maybe the starts of our own herd some day.
