Here is the baby I had yesterday..
It's a bull.
And he is wrinkling his nose at me.
He is one of the 5 calves I have had since Monday...only O-N-E was a heifer.
Oh well, at least they are all healthy!
Not to mention Lil' Wayne (my Angus calf) LOVES me!
He will suck the bottom out of a bottle of milk in seconds with his tail wagging the whole time:).
I love him.
I'm not going to sell him...though I have had offers.
I'm attached to the little guy and I may just keep him like 'Norman' on City Slickers..
That was his name right?
I can't remember.
My younger sister Taylor has been helping me feed calves in the afternoons since Mercy is not here.
She is sweet.
And shy, and quiet, and teeeeeny tiiiiiny.
She was 3 months premature when she was born so 'little' is more than likely how she will stay.
Taylor comes down to the barn each afternoon in her old clothes.
They swallow her and she looks homeless.
We talk for a few minutes then she waters and grains the calves while I feed milk.
It's a system and it works.
This is Ellie, or "Shmelly", as I call her..
