I came home from some errands this morning to see a calf in the meadow.

Hmmm...there shouldn't have been a calf in the meadow, especially one with a yellow ear tag.  It looked suspiciously like a calf that was born on Sunday afternoon, that we had moved to the calf hutches yesterday morning!

Here's her hutch door.  Closed and latched shut...

Here's what was in the hutch...

...and here's where I found her!

That's not her mother hovering over her, but a concerned citizen...

Now she's safely back in her cozy hutch, filled with fresh clean straw, and sunshine to warm her little body...

If she's gone on such an adventure already in her short two-day-old life, I wonder what other kind of trouble she might get into over the course of her life?

It seems that we have a Houdini in our midst!


  1. There's one in every crowd. : )
    I like her sense of adventure!!

  2. Hahaha, good farm adventure and cute little Houdini. We had the same thing happen to one of my calves last spring. She was still in the birthing pen while the mother was being milked and she travelled quite a way and went with the heifers. We had to search for her too.

    I hope she stays put this time. She was just looking for her mother...

  3. Nice thing that she was sticking close to home, and that another cow kept watch over her :)

    Have a great day!


  4. what a sweet little slippery one!

  5. Keep an eye on # 410! She looks pretty innocent in those pictures, though. -Jenn

  6. It really makes you wonder what they do when you aren't looking. She's a cutie.

  7. She sure is cute! Looks like trouble for sure!

  8. You've got a bit of a challenge ahead of you with that little escape artist.

  9. What an adorable little escape artist! Good thing someone was there to look out for her.


I enjoy hearing what you have to say! Thanks for your comments!
