The calf, mother Porntip and Pak Boon just went for a dip in the bottom paddock’s shallow pool. The little calf walked right in and was excited to be shoulder deep in water.
The calf was running about in the pool with his trunk out and eyes wide-open with all the excitement.
We threw green apples into the water as a special treat for the girls. The apples bobbed in the water and the girls would pluck them skilfully from the water using their trunks.
After all that hard work, running about and water play, the calf decided it was time for a drink of milk from mum.
