News Flash from the Princess of the Ponderosa… We had a set of twin moo-moos this past week. The little gal was separated from her brother…It happens sometimes… The cow has a baby, moves a little ways and has the 2nd. baby. By the time she has mothered them both a little… the 1st. One wanders off….then the Big moo-moo doesn’t want them both. Grandpa tried a little to put the family back together. The Big Moo-Moo wasn’t having it!
She’s so tiny and so cute! How could her Momma, Not Want Her? Well, Grandpa said, it was probably better that she is on a bottle. Cuz, then both her brother and her will do better. Grow faster and be stronger and healthier.
Since she is pretty small….Grandpa feeds her 3 times a day, instead of twice. So, her tummy doesn’t get too full! (Hey, I get fed 3 times a day….so my tummy isn’t too full to Hunt!) She has a funny bottle! It’s a nipple for a lamb, on one of Grandma’s water bottles. The other bottle calf is much bigger and it’s Momma couldn’t care for it….gets a Huge calf bottle with a Big milker thingy on it…(looks like something I’d like to chew on awhile?) The bigger calf gets only 2, half gallon bottles a day.. Hey! There must be something to being on the small side? You get extra when you’re a little shrimpy around here!
Anyway, Grandma and I are trying to find a name for the tiny moo-moo….She needs a name! Cuz, Grandpa makes Furpals out of all the orphans. He has 2 or 3 every year! They ARE NOT coming into my HOUSE!!!! Grandma would Blow a head gasket!!!! I’m NOT sharing Grandpa’s glider rocker with any other critters…After all, she has the Whole Big Barn to herself! Back to a Name…. Can any of my furpals give us ideas???? We can make a game out of it….Grandma loves animals but usually before summer is over…. Those orphans eat some of Grandma’s flowers. Rub on her bushes and break branches off. Leave hoof divets around the yard… Sometimes, they Poop in the yard! That last one is the last straw for Grandma! (Takes a lot to make Grandma MAD…. But messing with her personal space will do it!) When they poo, the Big, nasty barn flies come…. Us gals hate the flies! I can’t catch them all! I’d have to stay up 24/7.…. SSSooooooooooooo, Help me name the little moo-moo. I suggested, POOPSALOT, PAININTHETUSH, TINY and SHRIMPY. BUT, Grandma just didn’t think any of those were good little gal names…. Got any ideas???? Just leave a name or paw mail me…. Surely, someone has a good name??????
Lots of other stuff happened around here! We will save that for another day. Springtime on the Prairie is full of Surprises!!!!!
Hugs and Kisses, Mazy

Sassy ... sounds good. There are 3 not 2 now. They all need names..thanks for the Help, Sophie....
Hi Amaxing Gracie! I would name them
Precious, Pretty Girl and Penny, if they were mine to name. So specal are these little girls.
Sophie and Lexi- We like all the suggestions... Now what to do? We will wait a day or two. See if Grandpa sees any unique characteristics in each of them. They are all Red.... so their color isn't unique. thanks for helping me name them. Keep you posted......smoochies Mazy
