Then I go back to work and don't get to see my bovine friends much until the calves get weaned and brought home, and even then it's only when I drive by their pen that I pay much attention to them.
This past weekend I took some time to check up on two of my 2013 favorites. They walked right up to me like I was their long lost friend. (They must have forgotten all the cold showers, the yanking on their ropes, the pushing on their backsides...)

Cute photo-bomber in the middle!
Danny and Drew get in the pen with them every now and then, but right now the pen is over-full with the late summer calves that were recently weaned. The boys and I will start working with them again when the weather straightens around and basketball season is over. (We also have another steer calf and heifer that will be 4-H fair bound, too.) The little ones are so cute, but so dirty! Chuckie and Belle have had this pen to themselves for awhile, I guess that's why they stayed so clean. I love their furry hair this time of the year!
Chuckie was SO happy to see me, he wanted to give me kisses!

I think that they miss me. I miss them too. Summer vacation can't get here soon enough!!
