New calf

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We had two new calves today, one at the start of the day and one at the end. This photograph was taken this morning, about an hour after he was born. As you can see he is already up and walking, rather unsteadily, and had been on the receiving end of some tough love from his mother. She alternated between licking him clean and losing him around with her head; who knows why! Anyway, he’s fine now.

Meanwhile the calves born a few weeks ago are growing fast and starting to develop the attributes of a group of kids who hang out by the bike shed (or in this case the tractor tyre) and think they know everything.
