The calves are running through the fields with vim and vigor as their moms chase after them or merely take a look over the last of the seasons grass to make sure their kids aren't getting into trouble.
Jillian was giving her mom,Wanda, a face bath this morning as I entered the field for our morning cow chat.
These two are always the most interesting to watch. They play and tease each other like 2 big Golden Retrievers. None of the other cows play with their calves like Wanda does. She is the most unusual cow I have ever had.
Mellow, protective, playful, WISE, gentle, fussy about her snacks and vocal when it is time to go to a greener field.
All her calves wean heavy and calm. I would love to keep this heifer as a replacement. Wanda's heifer calf from last year was also incredible, but a friend wanted her so I sent her to a new pasture.
These two walk with me all over the field as I check all the other cows and calves. Sometimes they also escort me all the way back to my truck.
I am always under the all-knowing, watchful eye of Wanda.
Too bad cows can't vote.
