Apple, The Calf

Isaac's cow, Butternut, gave birth this week to a healthy heifer calf. Finally! It's been a while since the small Bentley herd has experienced some growth. Isaac called on Saturday to announce that he wanted to give the calf to Caleb. Caleb flew to the heights with excitement! It's a big deal to own your first cow!

Caleb gave the name, Apple, to the calf. Caleb wanted to start his herd by naming the first calf with an "A" name, in hopes that one day, maybe in fifty-two years, the twenty-sixth generation calf name would start with a "Z"! (What will that name be? Zucchini?)
