Daisy And Her New Mom In The Pasture

Last Saturday, Daisy and her new Mom left the barn and entered the pasture for the first time. You’ll recall that Daisy was a twin whose real Mom didn’t take care of her, while her new Mom had lost her calf at birth. We paired them up, they bonded, and this was the first time they were allowed out of the barn to join the herd.


Happy Easter to you and yours!



Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    So sweet! I have never seen a full sized cow do a little jump (happy dance) like that. She is sure keeping a close watch and the calf looks happy to be out too. Daisy sure looked surprised to see all the others like her. Happy, happy Easter to you, Harland and all your readers.

    This reminded me of the video you posted of the bison calves frolicking at the Tallgrass Prairie. My goodness- that mama is going to have her hooves full, keeping up with that one.

    What a wonderful Easter gift! Many thanks, and I hope your day was wonderful. Best wishes to your mom, too. I hope she’s doing better.
