This Baby Cow Born at Keene's Stonewall Farm Still Needs a Name
KEENE — Stonewall Farm needs the public's help after the recent birth of a female calf.
The dairy manager at the Stonewall Farm went out for lunch Saturday and came back to a brand new baby cow.
Typically, it's tradition for the farm to name the baby with a name that starts with the same letter as the mother, in this case, the mother's name is Opal.
However, they decided to reach out to their following on Facebook for name suggestions.
"We were expecting three to four comments," said Stonewall's executive director Julie Davenson. Little did the farm know, they were to receive over 170 name suggestions for the calf.
Some of the favorite names the farm received include Bette Davis, Button and Snowflake.
Davenson said that the calf is very lovable and curious. So much so, that the baby once squeezed through the gates and made her way through the barn. Davenson said that is very uncommon behavior for a calf.
"There's just something about her," Davenson said.
Stonewall Farm expects to release the name of the calf sometime within the week.
In the meantime here are some suggestions for names people made on their Facebook post.
Like this one, it's true, cute, and simple.
Some of the commenters had a unique sense of humor.
A lot of the names were winter themed.
Some of the best names came from some of the audiences' kids.
The black and white theme was prevalent as well.
Of course, some "O" also were in the mix.
