So this little guy's momma's milk dried up and he subsequently got sick. Sometimes a cow's milk will dry up for various reasons--pretty sure this one is just old age--she done! LOL. Anyways, grab this little guy and head to the barn. Arnold has a roomie! Well this calf was already 3 weeks old and used to getting milk from a big black momma cow and not some crazy person in pink boots. So it was a challenge getting Sylvester (I named him Sylvester because he's kind of sly....) to take the bottle. Plus there's Arnold all up in my business, "But Momma that bottle's for me!" Schwoo! Yesterday I got them to feed at the same time! DOUBLE-BAM! Two bottles, two hands, two calves....oh its a party in the barn! I have supreme respect for human mothers of twins! Can't even imagine.
|Isn't he cute?!?!|
|Here they are--aren't they precious?|
Bottles need handles on them though...those things get slippery!
