How to Pick Your Friends

A unique friendship bloomed out on the ranch this summer. The calf that was born on Doc's due date has taken a real shine to him. The calf free-ranges around the place, slipping in and out of her mother's corral with ease. Lately, the calf spends an unusual amount of time next to Doc's stall playing footsie and nosie with him.
When we let Doc out of his stall, the two of them chase each other like new puppies. They tear up one side and down the other at breakneck speed.


It must be his magnetic personality. The dogs think Doc makes a pretty cool mate too. Why do we forget how to play when we grow up?

What a fun post.

Why do we forget to have fun? Today I will have fun.

If that baby cow is slippin in and out of his mother's corral, how is mean momma not joining in the fun?

Cool story. I want a cow- but will probably end up with goats again.
Can't wait to see you on the 12th of Sept. At least that is when I get in. I may spend the day in SLC so I can meet Katie's future in-laws. Oh wait, are you in on our little secret yet?

P.S., she is getting married in the St. George Temple in Jan...

Can't wait to see you.
