Greased Lightning!



Four little Friesian calves came home with us from the last auction! One heifer (named Dolly) and three bull calves.
They obligingly drank their bottles on arrival and the first morning and then Cules decided to switch them to buckets and they gracefully slurped it up without too much hassle! They each stand by their buckets four times a day and happily drink their milk,we couldn't believe how easily they switched over to drinking from buckets...

  6. How lucky they are cooperating. Maybe these Friesian cattle are smarter than the average bovine.

  13. Hi again, it's great this being able to get to know different people from all over the work. I lived in Rhodesia in early 1970's, I was only 10 then. I remember driving through to Durban at one point. It's a beautiful part of the world.
