This sweet heifer was born and raised on the Blue Moon ranch, and even lived with my horse Grace in a cattle pen for a week while the calf was weaning and Grace was learning to get used to cows. As the heifer calf grew, I became fond of her, as did our three-year-old nephew, Tristan, who said he was "my cow." When it came time this summer to sort cows for auction, "Tristan's Cow" was one of the ones we decided to keep for breeding stock. So now she has a permanent home on the ranch, and Tristan will be very happy when he comes back to visit! I hope he likes her portrait.
