The Big Baby

P1020925

Since the last post I wrote was about this now-giant baby, it seemed like a good re-starting point to talk about him.  Yes, this is the calf from the Jersey Calf post that was written so many months ago.  Hard to believe isn’t it?  He is a coat color called mulberry but, as you can see, even mulberry Jerseys are born fawn colored.  They gradually change and get darker until they are almost black with an underlying hint of reddish brown.  Interesting and deceptive, you never know what you’re going to get with that little newborn.
