Stewie, Rowdy, Bronko, Dillon, and McQueen

Hubby named Glory's bull calf Stewart (after Jimmy), but we call him Stewie. Coincidentally, Stewie has Jimmy Stewart's bushy eyebrows. Hubby' favorite Stewart movie is The Rare Breed; mine is Harvey. 

Joy thinks that the sun rises and sets around Rowdy, her beloved first calf. Hubby named him after the Clint Eastwood character, Rowdy Yates, in Rawhide. Rowdy is doing his best to live up to his name.

Bronko is Liza's burly little fellow, named after Bronko Nagurski, a champion wrestler and football player from the 1930s and 1940s. 

Dillon is unquestionably the biggest (length, height, and weight) calf born on this outfit. His mama, Mayzie, isn't big at all, but, fortunately, she produces a lot of milk!

Winky's little dynamo is McQueen, named after one of Hubby's favorite actors, Steve McQueen. When Hubby was tagging McQueen the calf, the latter attempted his own version of The Great Escape. McQueen didn't get away, but when the dust settled, his tag was on backwards. 


"Well, I've wrestled with reality for 35 years, Doctor, and I'm happy to state that I finally won out over it." ~Elwood P. Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, in Harvey
