The calves are in the barn near our house! They were really excited to be outside and see everything new. Their feeder is different, so they have to figure out how to eat out of it. It's new for them to be in single free stalls, so they have to learn how to go in and out of them.

When I went down there two of them had their heads stretched waaaaay out and were eating dead - due to winter - weeds. A new food! Even though dead, still apparently exciting.

Exciting days for the calves, exciting for us as well. They look so big and healthy after a lifetime of fresh milk and a well-ventilated barn. I may just be seeing what I want to see, but hey - optimism never hurt anyone! Just ask the calf eating the dead weeds.
