I Dare You

The cutest calf contest has officially begun. We have a definite contender.


I'd like to get close enough for a good look. There's only one problem.


Mama is not signing up for the photo shoot.


Actually, Mama is not impressed with my presence whatsoever.


I get the distinct feeling that Mama is not, in fact, impressed with my existence. I think she's saying, "I dare you to get any closer to my baby."


She sure does have a cute calf, though. Thank goodness for zoom lenses.

You ain't lived until you have a cow chase you across the pasture and under the electric fence. I just remember thinking...."How am I going to clear the fence?" And "All I have to do is run faster then Mike!" LOL Very cute calf....all of ours are black...not much variety here.

So sweet!

Hmmm... mama cows...

Not very much different than we are as mamas, right?!

Awww... looks just like her momma. Guess you wouldn't have to worry about predators taking her baby, would you? Great pics Erin.

I love the 'under the belly' view in photo # 1. I recognize the angle! From farm gal in Canada ;)

Beautiful baby!

Looks like it's mama too only lighter! Those mamas can get pretty temperamental!
