They're here!

Honey the calf on Day 1

Honey and Lucy getting to know each other.

Wow! What a huge learning curve! Our house cow and her foster calf arrived yesterday and what a huge 24 hours followed! Tonight they are happily fenced into a small pen together, bellies full and asleep beside each other on the soft grass... And we're all exhausted!

The first feed Honey had from Lucy

First attempt at milking Lucy

Two of us milking into the shiny new bucket

Really beautiful, they are. All the best with learning how to milk and for the cows to settle down happily in their new home.
