The Stamford Museum and Nature Center has welcomed two new calves to its Heckscher Farm.  

One-and-a-half-month-old Nessie and three-month-old Prim  traveled from a New Hampshire farm to their new home.  

"They took their trip from New Hampshire and they took it relatively well and they came to us and are kind of settling in very nicely," said Mark Mogensen, co-manger of the Heckscher Farm.  

Nessie and Prim are "Milking Shorthorns."

"They're a very good temperament animal.  They also as a milking, dairy cattle, they're very good milkers and very good calvers.  So they're a very good all around breed and like I said, we're happy to have them," said Mogensen.  

The two farm friends aren't related, but act like family, as Nessie grooms Prim before lunchtime.  

"They are very very playful.  I still feel they're getting used to their surroundings," said Mogensen, "But once the weather perks up and it starts getting warmer, I'm sure the girls will be running around jumping and bucking and having some good old time here."

You can visit the new calves at the farm located at 39 Scofieldtown Rd. in Stamford.
