The answer is usually, not much. Maybe she takes a nap...maybe she kicks up her heels...maybe she chews on her neighbor's ear...maybe she looks innocent...
...or maybe she jumps over the gate of her hutch and goes for a run!
Isn't she the picture of innocence? Sweet?
She has you fooled!
Last evening while we were milking, Eric called out..."There's a calf out!" I went to investigate, and found Miss Innocent running through the yard, across the driveway and around the barn, headed for open fields and the road. On the other side of the road is a golf course..NOT a good place for a calf to roam.
Jenna and I tried hard to get around in front of Miss Innocent, but she was fast. Boy was she fast! Plus, we were running in barn boots, through corn field stubble and rye grass. She was a bit more agile on her four spindly legs. She had almost made it to the road, when two teenage neighbors came running to help us. The four of us were able to cut her off and get her headed in the right general direction. The two dogs didn't help a bit. Slackers! :)
Long story short...she didn't give up easily. Eric joined us, and tackled her in the garden. We got a halter on her and led her back to her hutch.
This morning I asked her what she was thinking...and she just gave me a shake of her head...
She just wanted some adventure, I guess. All at 2 1/2 weeks of age.
Oh my...what's she going to be like when she's older?!
