I watched one of our cows give her calf a "lick-down" the other afternoon. The calf acts just like a kid. The expression on it's face was just like mine when my mother would lick her finger and wipe off something on my face.
Happy Birthday mom! Hope you have a great day. Glad I live far enough away that you can't use that licked finger technique anymore! Growing up, she always said I looked like an orphan. Can you believe that!
