I would like to introduce everyone to Buddy. He is a Hereford whiteface calf co-owned with Marty and Mary Ann from A Wrinkle in Thyme Farm.
He came to us a bit shy. Ok, really shy. I about got my legs kicked out from under me a couple times. Fortunately, I remembered the silver rule, horses may kick behind them, but cows kick sideways! That said, we all avoided the lethal foot.
A little grain, a halter and lead, and lots of kind words and back scratches have gone far. we can now lead Buddy around (easier when his head is in a grain bucket) and he comes to us in the field. We’ll have Buddy till next fall or so.
