Infinity and Beyoncé

It’s an ‘I’ year for cows in France. All cows get a name when you register them and it must begin with an ‘I’.

P1070171

First calf of the year is Infinity and Beyoncé.

P1070414

Also out there somewhere are:

  • Icky Martin
  • Izzle
  • Inglewood
  • Indigo Girl
  • IUnknown
  • Internaute
  • Itsy Bitsy
  • Ipanema
  • IHOP
  • Iceburger
  • Ixnay
  • Isengard

You tell folks it is difficult to come up with ‘I’ names and you end up with some off-the-wall suggestions. Ixnay (suggested by Michael) still cracks me up as a name and Icky Martin is a cute calf. I can’t see Inglewood without saying “Jules Winfield, our man in Inglewood.” (Thanks, Steve.) We’re still waiting on an Inseminator and an Inconceivable.

This is heifer 33, who is now cow 33 since she is the mother of Ice Ice Baby (Michael again). Her registered name is Framboise but we know her by her nickname which isn’t very polite. She’s a very sweet cow even if she dribbles at the water tank.

We’re hoping for another fourteen calves in the next month or so then we’re expecting a couple of late comers from Old Girl and heifer 99.

  1. Oh, yummy! Such fun naming your babies! I love Infinity and Beyoncé, but I must admit, Ixnay takes the cake! I do pity the poor Frenchman who has to enter these names into a database. He’s going to get a real English workout. Unless he’s travelled in the States, he’ll probably think IHOP is the newest tablet from Apple! Or if his English is pretty good, he may think you were registering a rabbit by mistake! Poor me, I only get to think up two names.

    In case you run out of ideas, how about Ickle Diddums? That should really send the French Registrar over the edge! 😀

  2. umm, iRib (Rib Eye)

    Ibelieveyouhavemystapler?

    The lot can be called “I heard”.

  3. I LOVE Ixnay, lol.

    Thanks for the idea. The letter I is a challenge but there’s nothing like a good challenge to spawn genius!

    Cows look great 🙂
