Onyx: polled miniature Hereford bull calf

Well here he is at one week old, hanging out by the hay wagon soaking up some sun. I could not believe my eyes when I saw him eating hay already.....!

His face is so silky and soft, his little nose pink without a spot, and the curls on top of his head remind me of a white Peony...

All clean and white and room condition I would least for now!

This is Hawkeyes second calf, both have been polled. Onyx is a stocky little fella with nice proportions (for a week old!) and very friendly (his momma Emerald is "follow- you- around -the- pasture - rest -my -horn- on- your- leg - friendly" ....)
Its nice to have babies in the barnyard again!
