We extend a warm VMTRC welcome to our current Dairy Production Medicine Students.  We have five here, all from California, all attending UC Davis.  They are Sara Steidl, Bernadette Grismer, Amanda Hedges, Saralynn Specht, and Jennifer Gibson.

They chose to be photographed in cattle lockups, for their “serious” shot.  For a humorous look, they tried out the “Jersey Cow Tongue” look.  After “careful” thought, they then modified it to a more, well, natural cow tongue look, something a little . . . sideways.

Sagebrush Lizard or…?

Can you identify these wild avian and reptilian specimens?  I believe that the sparrow is a Song Sparrow, however, the black and white stripes on its head suggest that I need to photograph more of these to confirm.  Looking further at the black birds here, that must be a young Brewers Blackbird.  I’d say that Sagebrush Lizard is the correct identification for our reptile friend.

Harry and Hermione are not running now, when we come over to their location.  Hermione eventually came over and licked my hand after this photo was taken.
