curious calves and English idioms ...
These snapshots were taken whilst up on the South Downs, over the Bank Holiday weekend. There's more in the following post.
Don't you think these calves look pretty cute together?
When I'm blogging, I invariably find myself going off on a tangent.
In this post I deviated somewhat by looking up meanings of idioms and phrases. I find myself using them all the time.
Here's some cow related ones!
Awkward as a cow on a crutch - very clumsy or off balance.
Work your tail off - you work extremely hard.
All hat, no cattle - when someone talks big, but cannot back it up.
Chew the cud - you think carefully about something.
Until the cows come home - for a very long time.
Calf lick - a weird parting in your fringe where your hair grows in a different direction, usually to one side.
I've got one of those!
