As we emerge from winter (yes, we know it's May, but we live in Wyoming), the grass begins to grow and the calves are enjoying the warm sunshine. Eating, playing and sleeping are what they do best:
A tumbleweed becomes a ball to roll and a scratching post all in the same game.
Dexter calves have the unique ability to play dead while they are sleeping.
By far, the most favorite activity is eating! Astaire demonstrates the proper technique for the camera.
