The little calf has just done a little backwards moonwalk exactly like his father, Gung does sometimes.
We certainly know who his Dad is!
Gung has always had the habit of occasionally walking backwards
We're all very excited and tired but it still seems surreal.
Even though I can see him now and saw him being born, when I leave the room and see the calf through the window, I get a surprise and go: "Oooh, there's a calf in there."
The other cows all are all curious. They're reaching into Thong Dee's pen to try to touch the little elephant with their trunks.
They even look worried if the calf makes a little sound.
