Unforantly no his grandparents left them in the field like wild things. They provide hay and a salt block outside of that stock tanks. Slowly they gotten friendlier since we been here between us feeding leafy goodness corn treats and his dad feed cattle cubes. We gotten the a mineral block the next day it was gone. 30+ head. Not a huge herd but nice size.

I have a bottle raiser little heifers. She in with goats for now she about 3 months old. She head buts for milk and licks me of course. But now she tries to play with me lowering her head and bouncing. I am concerned she will try that when she older what should i do now to prevent that later. I can pen her down i am physically able to right now. I don't spend much time in the pen outside to clean the stalls collect eggs, feed up and water. I have four small children 7, 4, 2 , 3 months. They aren't allowed in the pen period. My concern would be if we go for a walk in the pasture is this animal going to think she can play with us when i would prefer she didnt.
Aww that is adorable, but yes, she might accidentally hurt the kids. Congrats on getting featured on our homepage! :)

After being wean since the start of covid she still tries for a bottle licking sucking and head butting. I get a cow bath taking to the barn to the front pasture and back again.
