which can be counted on each and every year:
And this year is no exception:
This time of the year we keep a sharp eye out for each new arrival:
They truly are like little kids the way they run and play and kick up their heels and swish their little fuzzy tails
I love their little wet noses!
Some are shy and peek out from underneath their Mamas:
And others are gregarious and inquisitive and eager to explore:
Although it isn't long before even they run back to their Mamas for a snack:
And they are always looking for their next meal:
I could spend hours out here watching them:
When the kids were growing up we would end up with a dogie calf almost every year for some reason or another and it was always a fun chore to feed them:
But its always much better when we DON'T have one because Mama does a much better job of raising her baby than we can with milk replacer. Still, those babies loved us and we fell in love with them:
Here are my first 2 dogie calves after we were married, Rambo and Trixie. Even after they were weaned, we could drive through the pasture and they would come running when they saw us or heard us call their names:
So today you get lots of pictures of sweet baby calves because that's the view from my window lately:
After all, who can resist a face like this?
