One of the best things about living in the county is having cows and cute little calves around all the time! Since we have youngish calves in the winter, they get extraordinarily fuzzy. It normally doesn’t get very cold here, so I can enjoy seeing their thick winter coats without any feelings of guilt.
Because they have pretty regular exposure to humans, our cattle aren’t very skittish at all. The fact that these pictures were taken without the benefit of a zoom lens of any quality is evidence of this. I pretty much just had to stick the camera in the calves’ faces. The bad part of this is that they see absolutely no reason not to lean over the fence to take a nibble off of any plants within reach in the yard. It is a small price to pay for all of the amusement I get from them, though.
