A Spring Frolic For Half Grown Calves

Seems like no matter the species – adolescents sometimes just won’t listen.
Pictured above is part of a group of half grown calves that decided on their own to party in the front yard.

The prevailing attitude of this bunch is that they are outlaws – and not ordinary bottle raised Dexters, Kerries and dairy crossbreeds.
It took about 25 minutes to finally convince them to stay off the road, out of the small garden, away from the manure pile and back into their pen.
They are truly the Devil’s own spawn because church was missed due to their antics.

    My sisters and I have chased a few of those type of calves/cows when we were growing up. When we were newly married, we rented from a dairy farmer. We occasionally had to chase his cows and pigs…even one time when we returned home from church. The Devil’s own spawn is right! :-) At least we can laugh about it now.

    Oh man! I can imagine what a headache that would be! What a bunch of hooligans ;-).

    By the way, I have printed out the Garden Planner that you posted on your sidebar. That’s brilliant! It’s exactly what I’ll be needing this year. Thanks so much.
