Bovine critters

Winter or summer, on a dairy farm there are always new little cows and bulls. Last week on my walk with Skabenga, I couldn't resist taking photos of these really new calves in the nursery.

 I loved the deadpan stare from this little calf...
 ...with a cattle egret's bill poking out above its ear!
Another new calf in the nursery 
 The much bigger calves waiting in the bottom of the nursery. They're about to be herded to another paddock nearby where they feed on cut-off drums of cereal
 This calf faced-off Skabenga...
 ... who has been taught not to bark at or chase cattle of any size
The farm horse stays in this paddock as well, until the larger cattle are fetched from the field and herded to an enclosure near my cottage for the night 

I'm linking to Saturday Critters here

Here's wishing you all a happy Saturday!
