Mama's and babes

Yup the cows and calves still need each other.  Even though we had some rain they still play outside but stop often for a snack.  The calves get a little grain and eat some hay but the milk is where most of their energy comes from

Kittie Parade

The other day I was looking for pictures to take and the kitties were following me. Fun to see their parade.  They must practise this.

Clipping time

Even though we showed our big heifers already we didn't body clip them yet. We clip the long winter hairs off before they fall out.  This makes it easier to brush them later. We point the clipper down so we don't cut the hair really short just to ge the long hairs.

Take time to pet

Time to Pet.
Some day some of these calves are going to be shown.  So when they are little we tie them up so they are calmer when they are older.  Some start out really jumpy, but after a while they do not mind us that much.  Tying them up now makes it less stressfull for us and them when they are older.  They can be hard to catch, but  they are really fun to pet.
