As for her calf, she is good sized, but little to no energy. She hasn't even stood up yet, and can't suck from a bottle really. We've tube fed her twice, and hope she perks up a little. Chances are she wasn't getting any food for the last while.
Now that other bum calf who is nice and healthy, will be getting a real cow mom. And not me. Bittersweet. A cow calved last night and when we checked her, the calf was dead. Not sure what happened but we will skin the calf, tie it to the bum calf, so the mom accepts it. We had named the bum calves Peg and Meg. Meg, the healthy bum was already following you around..quite the little trouble maker too! I secretly hope she stays as a pet though.

PS: this is my FAVOURITE shirt ever. It's a flannel shirt, but a pull over your head type, WITH pockets! And it was a $2 thrift store find. Win win win. Oh. That's my shirt i'm talking about. Jed's flannel shirt is one he found at a garage sale when he was like 14. It's a work shirt, thankfully, so I don't see much of it. Phew!
