Today’s Family Fun!

Our family fun activity today was electric- and halter-breaking our two calves!  It was quite the rodeo, with one calf collapsing and rolling over into the mud, then deciding he would never willingly stand up again.  The other was scared nearly out of his skin.  We did accomplish our purpose (we hope), at least as far as electric-breaking, and got both calves out in the big paddock with the cows.

Charley decides he will not be moving anywhere, ever.

Meatball doesn't want to move, either.

Daddy's home! Reinforcements for our side. Poor Charley had no options left.

Meanwhile, the little boys were playing by themselves.

Calves are stuck in tiny enclosures of electric wire to learn what to respect.

Now, they go out to the paddock with the big cows. Charley has to wear a weaner because he still wants to suck from his mom.

Mom is excitedly waiting for her son to arrive!

Investigating each other!

Now they have lots of room to roam.
