My favorite ‘time waster’ is watching my calves.
No, I’m not super vain!
I’m talking about my surrogate children. Its something I’ve written about before.
I often get in trouble for standing at the gate and watching them playing.
After a feed they often feel frisky. They’ll play tag or they’ll follow each other around, tails in the air and a twinkle in their eyes, running as fast as they can!
They’make an obstacle courses.
Through the hole in the fence, around the big tree, back up the hill and jump over the grain trough! If I happen to be in the paddock, it’s a guarantee they’ll include me!
Anything that goes into the paddock is fair game. Especially if it makes a noise when walked over!
One day my human children kicked a soccer ball into their paddock. They didn’t kick it, but there was a lot of inspecting…
“Ooo what is that?”
“Eeek it MOVED!”
“You touch it?”
“No! YOU touch it”
“Aaaahhhhhh! IT MOOOOOVED!”
“RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY!”
I wish you could see what I see, hear what I hear.
They are beautiful to watch.
I do procrastinate a lot watching them.
