Sparkling Clean Calf

I marvel every spring just how clean our cows can get their calves.

It’s not like they can throw their kids into a bathtub, all they’re doing is licking them clean. But just look at the results.

All these pics are of Eunice’s calf, born March 10.

Eunice must have some sort of magic cleaning agent in her spit.

And at 3 1/2 weeks old, her little calf’s diet is milk alone, but he’s starting to mimic his mama by mouthing plants and nosing around the grain trough.

It won’t be too many more weeks before the calves start grazing, but they’ll continue to nurse from their mamas until we wean them next fall.

Have a Blessed Day everyone!
