Red face My Jersey calf Ushi

I have a jersey calf that i got at about 6 weeks of age for mothers day last year. She was weaned early and i have had lots of trouble keeping weight on her. I soon figured out, she was being picked on by my horses.anyway now, after heaps of trial and error, I have finally got her in a good place. She's been separated from the horses. She gets to graze at her pleasure in my house yard on the new grass, that has finally come through after the rain. I took her last week, to a bloke that makes horse rugs, and he made her a nice little rug to keep her warm. She is taught to lead, which is handy. She hops in the float no problem when i need to take her anywhere. ( vet or rug maker) does anyone else have a Jersey for a pet? Love her to bits!! She loves cuddles, and when I slept in my swag in the paddock last week ( keeping an eye on my newly weaned foal) she walked over and camped with me all night. ( which was very noisy as she chewed her cud and burped all night)

While I don't have a cow, I'm SUPER jealous! I love cows and one day I'm hoping to have one for a pet, in that great far-off Someday when I have my own land. They're surprisingly intelligent and loving animals if they bond to people early.

Also, may I humbly request PICS!
