It wasn't long before the other girls were lined up at the nursery gate to "Oooo" and "Ahhhhhh" at the new baby. They would so like a baby of their own and by the looks of those bellies, it shouldn't be long.
This is what is on the other side of the gate.
|"Hey cute thing!"|
Today was moving day from the barn to the lean-to but first Bruce had to wake the sleeping baby.
He didn't want to move, quite the difference from last night. Bruce put his Mama out to drink and the baby wanted to follow. When Bruce thwarted his plan, he charged Bruce!
This little guy has an attitude!
But today you would never know as Bruce continues to encourage him to to leave the barn.....
.....the baby stops so Bruce rubs his flanks as they get closer to the door......
.....where his mother is watching suspiciously.
It's a windy, sunny but cold day in Iowa as the pair head for the shelter of the lean-to......
.....little #10 checks out the bedding......
.....and scales a pile of corn stalk bedding, following his mother into the safety of the lean-to.
Every healthy calf makes all the sleepless nights worthwhile, back at home ..........Mollie wants to be assured that Bruce still loves her best.
And Murphy is contemplating an attack on Smitty.
But Smitty has really sharp claws and Murphy re-thinks the attack.
Because there are easier targets, like Mollie.
Murphy is a pretty smart puppy.
