Norman is a 2 and a half years old Jersey. We were visiting a local farm to buy some homemade cheese and went on to the barn to see the calves. My husband fell in love with Norman and went to ask the farmer if he would sell him. Since he was a male Jersey, he was of no real value to the farmer and so he gave him to us for free.
He was only four days old and still had his umbilical cord attached. He was the same size as our German Shepherd when we first brought him home. He loves the cookies we get for the horses. Norman will follow you anywhere for a cookie. We take him for walks near a local golf course and get some funny stares. He chases the car when we drive in the driveway, bucking a mooing like crazy. And he loves to play with the dog, tossing her playfully in the air with his big head. He is very gentle with the ducks and the chickens and they enjoy sleeping in his stall with him.
I never knew that cows had so much personality! Norman loves to be petted and he gets depressed if he does not get loved regularly.

This picture was taken a long, long time ago. We were raising this calf from 3 days old and he stayed in our fenced in back yard with our dogs. Every morning and evening he would come to the window for his feedings. This is my daughter Kelly feeding him. He was a sweetie.
We bred her from our cattle and I had an instant connection with the little girl so I bought her from my grandfather.
