Naughty Cows

Brent lays out hay for January.  Perfect hay bales.  The herd gets two bales a day with fresh grass.  But last night, they pushed through the front, temporary fence.  Could have been a calf  or could have been a silly mistake.  No matter, they had a great night of hay buffet, all-you-can eat.  Ruffled bales of gastronomique proportions.

Brent rolled out some hay and we pushed them back down to their strip. They did this.IMG_1254

Sat down, ruminated, stood.  Not much eating.  Their stomachs were full.

We later rolled out another bale and moved them along.IMG_1256

They found room.IMG_1264

New calf this day.  The mother’s name is “Heather” after my niece.  We call her “Jumpy Heather” because she is a bit of a spaz … but then, so is my niece.  But she is a fantastic mom.    Funny enough, so is my niece.  The calf is a strong boy, healthy and content.
