Demolishing Dirt Mounds with Aunty Tang Mo

This morning we took the calf out for another walk in the lower paddock.

The calf, Thong Dee and aunty Tang Mo had a great time throwing mud on themselves.

Tang Mo and the calf ran onto a big dirt mound and demolished it totally together.

The whole family then explored the knee-deep moat. We seriously thought all five of them were going in for a dip.

They stood with their front legs in the water and us keepers were quickly taking off our shoes and socks just in case we had to jump in too with the calf.

But they decided not to after all.

The calf is really having a good time out there. He is just a joy to watch.
