Richard's immediate reaction was "Left or right calf?". My immediate reaction was to check that she did mean a baby cow, and not a whale. (Said friend lives in the middle of Australia with an enormous menagerie, and while I think whales would be unusual in her area, she has enough strange animals that I wouldn't be surprised!).
Anyway, yes, she is a small bovine creature with big brown eyes. Apparently she's named after me because we have the same tenacity. I think this is a compliment ;)
