I love this time of year when there are little calves skipping about the paddocks, exploring the world that is all so new to them, and hearing their mamas give that beautiful soft moo they only have when their babies are newborn.
I find it amazing that in one day after birth, calves initially wobbly on their long longs are zooming about the paddock, skipping and jumping with perfect balance.
The calves pictured are Jellybean and Chicco Baby, born only 2 days apart. Their mamas gave birth only days apart last year too; I wonder if these two cows will always be synchronized mamas?
We seem to be naming our calves with a confectionery theme this year. I'm hoping for some heifers since our first two have been little bull calves.
What been happening in your world lately?
How does Spring unfold in your part of the world?
I hope you have a great week
