Separation Anxiety

Our calves are about two months old now, and while they are growing up quickly, they still suffer from severe separation anxiety when taken from their mamas.

Working cows is a noisy affair.

It provides for some interesting views.

Motherhood has made me quite sympathetic toward the mama cows.

The babies are so near

yet so far away.

My apologies to those who are bored with the cow pictures.

As slimy as it may be, I still prefer dealing with this end of the cow in comparison to the other end.

I love the cow photo's...makes my "I miss living in the country" syndrome better for the day. I prefer the front end of the cow too.

Those pictures are really good quality. Are you into photography at all?

Also, I thought what you said was really interesting. The farm I lived on didn't have cows, so I never knew that cows had separation anxiety. What do you mean when you say it is severe? How can you even tell? Do they usually calm down after 2 months, or does it last longer?

And you're right... I think that's the better end of the cow to deal with!!!! lol

But really - great pictures!!!!
