Improvise, Adapt, and Overcome
Remember our baby calf that lost his momma? He is the small brown calf in the picture. We fed him a bottle for about three days after we lost his momma. One day we went out to give it to him and he didn't want it. This started happening at almost every evening feeding. Then he didn't want his morning bottle so we knew something was up with him. We really started watching him and realized that he had started getting his milk from our Black Angus Cow. We call her Agnus and she is the mother of the smaller Black Angus cow in the above picture. Her "baby" still nurses so she still had some milk left for our new calf. If you look close at the above picture, you will notice that the black calf is nursing from her momma while Stew Baby is using the smaller black calf as a pacifier! He does this often.
Did I mention that I love Spring on the farm?
grace and peace,
