Our Calf Gets a Name

Over the last three weeks I’ve watched “little Etta” grow and learn, but I still haven’t given her a name!

I got a great name suggestion by email earlier this week, and it reminded me it was time to decide. I shared a few new pictures via twitter and Instagram yesterday which yielded even more ideas, so now I’ve got way too many good choices!

I went with random number selection, so I’ll list all the ideas below by number submitted and then share the winner. Thanks to all for taking time to give me your ideas. I know things are busy as summer winds down, but the cows and I appreciate you reading!

1) Cinderella (Ella)

2) Bordeaux (Deaux)

3) Lucille (Lucy)

4) Greta

5) Corazon (Cora)

6) Nevada

7) Hillary

8) Heidi

9) Jetta (Etta’s Jetta)

10) Sugar




The pick is lucky number 3. In honor of sharing Lucille Ball’s birthday, this is little Lucille.

Have a great day everyone, and check back soon for more tales from the farm and maybe some tales from the state fair!
