It’s tiring be a calf! After running and playing, eating and drinking, it’s time to have a nap when the tractor appears!
While mum eats until her heart (or stomach) is content, the calves often take the opportunity to have a quick nap, knowing they are in among the safely of the herd.
They snuggle down in to the hay until they are comfortable and sleep soundly until the cows start to move off to get a drink. Often for a couple of hours at a time.
It’s alway much nicer, if when they’re sleeping, the sun is shining warmly!
