Synopsis:

June 2009

Our third calf here on the croft but still a delight


Near the end of June, and about a week before expected, our new dexter calf put in an appearance. Her name is Olive.

We were on our daily feeding round, and found that Pippa had calved in private as usual. A small bundle could be seen in the grass, and Pippa didn't seem too keen to come over and feed.

We approached to a safe distance (cows with calves can be very protective), left Pippa's feed, and retreated to watch. From their behaviour it seemed that Olive hadn't been born long before.

Although Olive is our third calf here at the croft, we were still surprised and delighted when we saw her! She is a delight.
