I saw a few back in the trees and already knew their tricks from previous trips. I only run 3 over with the cruise and make it just fine.

They are coming around. They'll come up with the others when I throw out cubes but they don't seem to know what the cubes are. One will eat a couple and the other will just smell and then they both walk off. They still keep about 15 feet between us but not acting crazy like they started out. I'm pretty much working my way back to the pens with the cubes so hopefully I can catch them in the near future to work. Thanks for checking!

Decided to follow up with pictures since it's been a few weeks now. Both seem to be okay with me with a little distance, but both still watch me like a hawk. I've ran them through the chute a couple times now as a group and didn't tear anything up so far. Still need to hold and catch them both. Maybe just me but I think they've filled out a little and don't look as rough. I didn't get the udder in 550's picture, but it still looks much the same.

They are looking a whole lot better than when you got them. Glad to hear they are calming down a bit. Like 550's build in the picture.

Thanks. I also think 550 is the better of the two and she's the calmer one. They are both due in March with 550 in the middle of the month and 560 at the end
