Sunday afternoon my husband and I took a stroll out to see the mama cows and their sweet little babies.
This is one of my favorite parts of raising cattle. I just never get tired of seeing a brand new baby calf. They are adorable!
It was a bright sunny day…a change in the weather we’ve been having…so needless to say all the calves were taking their afternoon cat nap…cow nap…calf nap? What do you call a calf when it’s napping?
Our presence seemed to catch the attention of every cow and calf in sight. But that’s alright because I enjoy watching the calves stretch when they get up from their nap.
Geez…did I forget to shower today?
Surely my husband and I don’t smell that bad…
we must have looked like really big coyotes, stalking them…a few of the scaredy cats took off running.
However, there are always a few brave ones in the bunch. Maybe it’s because they are a bit older or…
it’s because their momma was right behind us and they know what that means.
And plenty of it.
This brave soul stuck around for awhile even though his mom was trying to call him over…
“What? You don’t scare me…What are YOU lookin’ at?” Don’t worry baby, you’re mamma behind you is keeping me on edge anyhow.
Alright mama cows…we’ll leave you and your babies alone now. Sorry for the brief panic attacks you all had! I wish I could tell you that it’s not branding time yet. We’ll see you in May!
