206 is a cow. We are now in the calving season and everyday we go out and see if any cows are in need of help, but normally we just check on them and give them hay. I like to visit my favourite cow 206. She’s a beauty! But boy is she a gobble dock!
206 is very quiet you can even pat her, basically everywhere. Whenever 206 has a calf, all she does is has it, and then leaves it. So, when ever she gets close to calving, we have to put her in the yards and keep a close eye on her. We like to name her calves and so far 206 has had two calves. The first one was a boy and we named him Patch because he had a patch on his forehead, and the second one was a girl and we named her Christine I don’t know why but we did.
At the moment, 206 is in the house paddock, and every morning she comes and visits the calf, Liquorice, that we are feeding, and waits for her to join her for the day. It looks cool when they go off together. Sometimes Liquorice and Malty, last years poddy, join up and spend the day together.
The other day Mrs Patient was not so patient!!! Someone left the gate open and 206 came in and ate some of the lucerne mulch from Mrs Patient's roses.
