Waiting to cross the road

...feels like it takes forever for the traffic to pass sometimes. This particular "traffic" was wandering across a public footpath. We thought we'd wait our side of the gate until they'd passed (those horns look sharp!)

You can almost hear the littlest one at the back, complaining "Are we there yet?"

Most of the mums were begged for a drink as soon as they'd arrived.

My favourite photo - you can just about see the milk all over his face! He needs a flannel.

Oh Heather, wonderful photos. Very like our herd, tho ours are polled (naturally hornless). Love their body shapes. Herefords are gentle, though moms very protective of their calves. And yes the calves do need face flannels, oh they sure can slurp up the milk.
