Cozy Calves

While waiting for the water bowl to fill, I grabbed some shots of the calves.

When the cows are moved, the calves get excited.  They run around and then get bored.  The sun is on today, so they snuggle into the grass while they wait for mum to have her tea.

Lots of chatter about the water cooler today.  I stood there for thirty minutes or so waiting for the bowl to fill.  But it was sunny and I haven’t sunbathed for years, so it was good times.

The herd gets cozy when it’s warm.

The grass is good.

Poor mum can’t have a break to take a drink without junior.

    We use those same stock tanks at the zoo for raising turtles.

      Cool! I love the auto-fill. Do the turtles get so excited about the water they push it under the fence? Turtles are older and wiser.

        No, they swim happily IN it. They don’t come out because they’re very small.

      they are pretty, but dangerous. We have polled bulls for next season. That means no horns for the calves!!

      They are Salers. In America, it is pronounced ” Say-lers ” in France it is “Sah – lehrssssss” ( make sure you have a glass of wine when you say that ). Lovely cows, smart, but not too smart. Lovely horns. Wonderful mothers. Full of milk. Very little birthing trouble. Rustic, outdoor cows. Eat grass faster than any other cow in France.
