Down the road

Down the road a ways from where we live is a small hobby farm.  They recently acquired a couple of new cows, I think black Angus, that we noticed as we drove by.  A week or two later we saw another addition, a small calf, who seems to be growing rather rapidly. 

Sorry to say, one of my first thoughts when I saw it was Yum!  Veal!  No, really, it was. Come on,  you can’t blame me.  I live in a rural area.  Cows and pigs and chickens equal food.

My next thought was that this poor little creature needs a name.  And what did I come up with?

Introducing . . . Veal Young!

Veal Young is on the right.  When we stopped to take a picture, we were surprised to see another small creature.  So, in keeping with the theme, we named him Veal Younger.  I think that's one of their mamas in the back.

    I'm the person who doesn't want to "meet" their food before they eat it. :-) I'm so skittish about that it isn't funny. The cows look so cute!
