However, when you are on a ranch, you Never ever know what's going to come up or happen!
On Saturday there was another bum. A poor calf who's momma didn't care about it. We've paired them two up a few times now and as soon as they're out of the pen, the mom loses track of her calf and she starves! Cole found the calf on Saturday and it couldn't even stand up. He took the calf to it's mom, and the calf turned and followed Cole! That's a sure sign that it doesn't want it's mother anymore! We gave it a bottle, and she chugged it down and lounged in the shop. Later she got some electralights (sp?) and some mineral oil because she was super weak and constipated. It fixed the constipation. (In the shop.) but didn't give her much strength. There was a cow who lost her calf earlier so we tried to pair it up...the cow wanted a calf so bad, but the calf was too weak to do anything. She died on Sunday. So sad!

|I wanted to make tarts but the store had no tart shells nor did Walmart. So I decided to make them myself. Absolute fail!|
I "spent" time with my chicks. (Not really, but fed them some grass and such.) Those stinkers are growing SO fast! They go crazy over grass clumps I pull for them. I cannot wait until the coop is fully done and they are outside. They are really stinkin things up!
