This is the first season that we have had the calves born right here at the barn. Usually we get them out on fresh green grass before they start calving. We bred them just a little earlier last summer. It has been a real treat for this Mama and her kiddies to get to spend so much time with the herd and especially their new calves. Every sunny morning we have been out there after breakfast petting and talking to them. Connelly has become quite adept at quietly creeping up and itching them...they turn around..."THAT IS NOT MY MAMA" and usually run away. He has gotten a few to relax and become his friends.
They will be going up to graze on our neighbors pastures next week, so we are getting in all the time we can while they are right here.
