View Full Version : My Crotal Bell Display

It finally arrived! I think I first mentioned I would be doing a display about 4-5 months ago when I found a couple small crotal bells at a field permission of mine.

My wife has always wanted a milker. So this past spring I bought her a pregnant Jersey heifer and she was supposed to be due end of May but the farmer was just a bit off on the due date...3+ months off! This past Sunday "Maple" had her calf. Its a bull (soon to be a steer) and his name is "Habs".


We will not have him wear it all the time but I think its nice to hear the bells ringing again even though I think crotal bells were typically for horses back in the day.

I also put together a quick video so that you can listen too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tfzm6dCQzK4

Thanks for looking!

That's awesome! It's great to hear those bells ringing again after all those years, and Habs looks as happy as can be! :thumbsup02:
