The farm next to the stable my mom boards her gelding at has cows and calves in the field. They are shy, and have ran away from me and my camera in the past.
This time, I slowly sneaked up to the fence. I'm sure I looked like a cougar stalking it's prey, it was probably not the best approach. But the young calves didn't bolt and stood transfixed, watching me with focused, cautious interest.
Stare at these faces long enough and these youngsters morph from cute calves into cranky old men, reminiscent of puppets from the Muppet Show.
As I snapped photos, I noticed a common theme on the agenda that day.
Moo-ve in to the right.
Moo-ve in to the left.
Early morning yoga.
Coming soon to a pasture near you!
Oh, and since it was Valentine's Day, there was a little lovin' going on, too!
