Post He is a brat-boy and teaching her to be the same...........
Oh,we knew we had trouble on our hands when we realised it wasnt Mum who misplaced her 10 hour old child, but the child had moved from where he was 'put' and then refused to answer his mother when she called him repeatedly for several hours.

But Brat-boy is really living up to his name now. Not only does he make his mother run after him while he tears off into yonder on his own, but he still refuses to answer the majority of the time when she calls/bellows at him.

He hangs around the big boys (the two maturing bulls) most of the time, and when not with them, he is trying to con younger Branna away from her mum's shadow to get into mischief with him. His curiosity is amazing!

He has already found his way into the chook enclosure and yes, we had to get him out after his mother was running around the boundary calling him.

Yesterday afternoon here was Brom, and Branna, in the chook enclosure AND chasing the chooks :hmm
He is only 19 days old. Branna is 10 days old.
Arent these calves born with a protective instinct to stay near mum and jump at everything new????????????????

I have decided "Midget-moo children" are not made bad - they are born it :lol: :lol: :lol:

Oh these two certainly are making life a little more interesting.

Mind you, we have only had the one calf born at our place before (Ash) and she was a sweetie, but was on her own until 3 mths of age until Lou Lou who is a month older, arrived from the the sunshine coast. Within days the two girls were inseparable. But never into mischief.

So its either these two are naughty midget-moos, or its a normal thing for Dexter babies............we have 5 due at the end of this year within days/weeks of each other...................so we'll know more then :D

But we are truly enjoying their antics each day.

Oh that cute little man has devil written all over his face, however I think I can see a halo there above Branna - just it's slipped slightly :lol: .
