Iris is the first-time mom, and her calf is Mary Ann. The other female cows have been good to Mary Ann and licked her and protected her. Mary Ann will soon have two cousins, and they can all frolic together. This is going to be so cool. The cows have long hair on their ears that they can use to flick off the flies that bother their eyes. They can scratch themselves with their horns. The cows have even dispositions and the bull shares their pastures. Everybody pretty much gets along, although there is definite jockeying for the treats. Too bad we can't be more like the Scottish Highland Cattle.
