He just went for a short walk with all the aunties this morning in the lower paddock.
After the rain, Thong Dee’s hole which she uses as a dust bath filled up with water and the little calf tumbled into the puddle.
He splashed in and fell over but got up really quickly.
We’re keeping the time together with the all the aunties short because they are showering him with attention which can be a bit overwhelming for a little guy.
Tang Mo is really protective and is like a second Mum and she’ll cut in if the others get a bit too attentive.
The little fellow doesn’t seem to care.
We’re very happy watching him develop so fast. We couldn’t hope for better.
