    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.

    Thanks for looking!

    They really make some noise when he gets them up to speed! They sound great!

    That's the first display case I've seen that you have to feed.
