It was almost bedtime...

...when we looked out the window and saw a new baby calf out in the pasture.

That's why some of us ran out in our pajamas to get a closer look...

I didn't think a calf could get any cuter than this guy who joined us a few weeks ago...
farm5


but our newest addition is giving him a run for the money

farm7
but then I do have a soft spot for brown cows

farm8
and look at the sweet white socks
(I love white socks even more than I do brown cows)

farm9
everyone came out to see the new baby

farm9a

farm9b
even Ollie

farm9c
and Bayson

(he almost looks a little worried that the new calf may take his place as most beautiful -

not to worry, Bayson, you'll always be the Prince of the Farm).


Sometimes it was a little hard to get a good shot of the new baby

because THIS GUY kept jumping in the picture

and this guy.

The Three Amigos

The Three Amigos, and a mom.


Did you ever feel like a cow when you were pregnant?

g3
Wonder what she feels like?


g5
Sorry, m'am. No offense. You look just lovely.


g6
Yes, you're cute, too.


g7
And this guy even has talent.

g8
He does giraffe impressions.


Now back to our featured cutie...

I could take calf pictures all day.

But lucky for you...


h3
My evil calf-photographing nemesis showed up to thwart my plans.

Meanwhile, our hero, Super-Piper, is off saving the day by chasing away the evil NeighborhoodDogWhoLikesToTormentOurRabbitsMan

So our dastardly villain puts her evil plan into action

h7
the calves are naively unaware of the danger that lurks only a few feet away

h8
"Hey is that a cow over there?" they innocently ask.

i1
"It's kinda short"

"Let's go check it out"


i2
"Hey, are you a cow?"


i3
"'Cause you're kinda funny lookin'"


i5
"And whew, you smell AWful!"


i6
"NOT A COW! NOT A COW!"

And our evil villain prances triumphantly back to her lair to plot her next plan to foil Calf-Photographer-Girl's efforts.

So, Calf-Photographer-Girl is reduced instead to taking pictures of her daughters chasing grasshoppers...

  2. now for real fun with those grasshoppers, take them over to your chicken yard, drop them in and watch what happens. My kids would do that one at a time just to see which hen would win the race to get to the hopper and gobble it up.
    Country Hick fun!
