love is in the air

Don't worry folks, this is as far as I'll go showing "cattle romance" in my journal.  Although this cow wasn't quite ready for intimacy, the bull obviously knew the time was at hand, because he stayed right behind her wherever she went, yesterday morning.  By yesterday evening, he was pursuing his ardor a bit more aggressively.  So, if everything goes well, this cow is likely bred now.  I wonder if she'll have twins again?  Those babies of hers are now three months old, and growing quite well.  Of course, they still steal milk from the other cow, so it's no wonder they're doing fine.  The surprising thing to me is that the other cow's calf seems to be getting along great, also.

Oh that is so sweet! I would love to witness that...er....not the "Cattle romance" part but the birthing part.  Hope it goes well!  ;)
