This morning we took the calf out for another walk in the lower paddock.
Thong Dee is having a bath, so the calf is having a bath by default too!
Thong Dee had her first long sleep since the baby’s arrival last night. Tang Mo played baby watcher as Thong Dee slept for five hours straight.
We took them outside for a walk just now and the adventurous calf ran towards to Aunty Porntip who accidentally bumped the little fellow, making him fall over.
When the sun came out after lunch we went for another walk to the Lower Paddock.
ur little calf enjoyed his first real bath with mum and aunty Tang Mo inside the barn.
All three aunties and Thong Dee spent the afternoon in the lower paddock with the calf.
He just went for a short walk with all the aunties this morning in the lower paddock.
He has just used his little trunk to pick up a pineapple top for the first time! He'd been trying to do this during in mum's morning feed, poking the pineapple tops with his trunk, but now he's already learnt how to pick it up.
We watched Thong Dee have her first proper nap lying down last night. It was beautiful. The calf lay between her front legs with Tang Mo just next door.
