I'm In Love

The black calf was born just a few days ago to join his/her cousin in the pasture. Notice that the brown calf (Mary Ann) is tethered to a stake with a blue leash. Don't know if she was naughty or not. Also has a blue band around her middle. The black calf's mother (Chelsea) has rather pale coloring and we are wondering what color he/she will be. None of the other cows are black and his dad is brown. (The sweet-faced young bull).

These are Scottish Highland Cattle, a hardy breed from (sic) Scotland that are even tempered and can spend the winter in the open air. The black calf's mother is just two year's old.

I feel like a doting Grandma.
