    Great picture Carmel, reminds me of an advertising picture from many years ago for western star butter lol (-:

  • Thank you for your lovely comments, She could be in an add, the amount of milk she has is unbelievable, also must be very rich as poor baby only has a few suckles and stands there with his nose all wrinkled up and milk froth dribbling down his chin!

  • Yes, is a bit funny, you have bred a lovely breed of cattle. I have 9 big ox and 3 cows. Tourists come past and blink, milking cows in Camooweal??!!

    Oh Daisy, you did a great job!! You too, Carmel.

  • She did do a good job, I was nervous; being an older cow and first calf I thought she might have trouble. She had him in no time and after she delivered she stood and turned around and bellowed and bellowed over the top of him!! I thought she might trample him, must have been the smell of the blood. She eventually settled down and started licking him. Then she kept kicking him when he nuzzled her udder, but being a typical persistent male, she eventually let him have a drink and rest is history and I had a good night’s sleep!!!

    So glad it all turned out well. He is a spitting image of his mum!

  • Yes , he is a lot like his Mum, I moved them back into the herd yesterday, had to walk them about 1km, he is so fat and soft now! By the time we got there he was knackered and laid straight down!! Mum just keeping mooing softly and he kept pottering along!
