The Bag Lady thought you might like a look at how the calves are progressing, so here are a couple photos of some of them. Can you pick out your namesake in these pictures?
That's okay, the Bag Lady gets a little confused, too. So many of them look so much alike, sometimes she has to wait to see which cow is their mother before she's absolutely sure which calf is which! Of course, some of them are more easily identifiable. Little Dawn and Saffron are still a bit smaller than the rest, but they are growing well.
Lewis is the only calf who will actually allow a human to touch him. He will come up to the Bag Lady and sniff her fingers, then reach out tentatively with his tongue and have a taste. He will allow her to scratch his head, but only when he is in the mood...typical. Most of the rest of the calves will come almost up to the Bag Lady, stopping just out of arm's reach. They are all very curious.
Almost all of the calves have chased the Princess dog, which strikes the Bag Lady as funny. The Princess is part Border Collie, and Border Collies are supposed to be cattle dogs. They are supposed to chase the cows, not the other way around! The Princess hasn't quite grasped that concept. She still chases birds across her airspace, though, especially ravens and magpies. Silly dog.
