Bottle Calf Meet Herd, Urban Hat Meet Cattleman


Our bottle calves are ready for the herd.  Poodle, a yearling, sets the hierarchy.



They are mixing at the moment.  And hopefully they shall realize that they are not a retriever, but a cow.  We shall see.

On the left, urban sun hat. On the right Australian Cattleman hat. Both sun protective. Each with their own ton “steel.”



Herding bovines where they need to go.  I love a good hat.  And a good bovine walk.  For the first time, I feel like baby bottle calves are one with the herd.  We shall see.

Z Is In A Hat Phase

Hold on to your hats, Zélie is eyeing them.
She puts a hat on then off then on then throws it.  Then the hat goes on again with the heels.


I love hats.  I would love to got back to the hat wearing days.  In France, hats are worn.  All sorts of hats.  What happened to the hats?  We have lots of hats.


In 1926, they wore lots of hats.  Was it the lack of central heating?  Was it fashion?  Was it no fear of hat hair?

Zélie says, “bring the hat back!”  And I agree.
