She is our oldest and wisest cow. She is full blood Angus. My Grandpa, Erich Domel, gave her to me as a Christmas gift in 2005. I was ecstatic. My very own calf! She tolerated my exuberance and has put up with me for the last 13 years. When Craig and I married she fell head over heels for him. She loves her back rubbed and will tolerate a head scratch. Gracie has blessed us with 10 healthy calves, low birth weight, and fast growers. She prefers to calf at night (much to our dismay), but, thankfully, has never had any trouble. While the young cows kick up their heels, she ambles slowly, taking her time, enjoying her place in the herd.
