Cute Baby Cows, or, The-Shameless-Pandering-for-Hits Post.

by Tulasi-Priya on Wednesday 21 December 2011

I just created my “about me” page, which will have to suffice for a blog post today. There you will find a truncated, bowdlerized version of my life, as well as one of the better photos of me from the last 20 years. In the meantime, here’s a few snaps of some calves that have been hand-raised from birth by some friends of mine. These photos were taken in February of 2006, which would make these babies some serious bruisers by now. They help plow the fields, and their mama still gives plenty of milk. You can’t cuddle them on your lap while watching TV, but as you can see, they’re every bit as affectionate as dogs or cats, and they work for their keep, too!







Madhu gets them accustomed early to the yoke. The word “yoke” has the same etymological Indo-European root as the word “yoga.” Essentially, both mean “to link together.” In the first case it’s with another bull, in the second, it’s with God.
















I’m not sure if they’re twins, or simply a matched set, but they seem to like each other. Cows are very social beings.


Cute! Cute! CUTE!


























When humans are friendly to them, they’re friendly back.






























 Not much bigger than a pitbull, but they pull their weight, and more.

I guess this turned into a real post after all.

Cows have the most beautiful, liquid eyes . . . and baby cows even more so.

Thanks for the cute break—and your “About Me” page and photo are lovely.

Need. Cows. Those babies are seriously adorable.

(Please Santa, can I have a calf for Christmas?)

I’m not going to show these pictures to my kids. Otherwise, I’m sure I’ll hear “We want cows for Hanukkah!” Yes, indeedy do, they are cute.

As for your ABOUT page, how beautiful are you????? It looks like your natural instinct is to smile. Bottling it wouldn’t even be possible.

What I meant to write was “suppressing it wouldn’t even be possible.” Bottling it would be wonderful!

Thanks for the baby photos. I wish I could pet them, then and now. (We grownups need petting sometimes too, don’t we?)

Ré, thanks for visiting. I’m happy I discovered your blog, and I look forward to getting to know you better.

Thanks for stopping by and for your beautiful and appreciated comment. I had a beautiful daughter sixteen years later.

Cow story: I live semi rural and taking my human twin grandaughters to school one morning we saw the mom cow licking the sac and stuff from the new baby. Lots of life is very wonderful.

Ginnie (I’ll stop calling you that if you want), the cow birth must have been interesting. I saw one myself one time. Recently I was treated to the sight of an elephant giving birth on YouTube and am still recovering. Let’s just say that high pressure hoses are necessary, postpartum.
