Startling revelation

Apparently, I am steeped in ignorance when it comes to cows. Baby Bull is NOT a baby bull. Baby bull is actually "Miz Heifer". We had friends visit us from Nova Scotia last week. Andrew raises cattle (although he's switching to organic cereals.) He politely pointed out that Baby Bull lacks the necessary "equipment" to be a bull. And sure enough, yesterday I noticed her teeny-tiny teats. I'm so embarrassed... you'd think I could sex a cow. Here we are, Anne, Andrew and me, (and toasty Tara the English Setter) performing scientific observations (because what else do you take a tourist cattle farmer to see but the village cows?):

"That's no bull!"
