Teaching a calf to walk on a halter is not easy. Imagine leash training a puppy that had no desire to please you.
Dogs want to be a part of the pack, and look to you as the leader. Calves dont feel the same! They want to be with the herd, not you.
The kids have been struggling with the calves.
Mike’s calf has been the most agreeable, but even he objects to a nice controlled stroll around the yard.
And worst of all, has been the sweet little Brown Swiss, Rusty.
The kids know to hold the halter close to the calves head, but they clearly werent listening tonight.
Even though the calves are frustrating, they are still well loved.
