Who’s the Boss?

Apparently the heifer is. She busted into the corral where her calf was and he sucked her dry. We talked to the vet and he said to just leave them together and just see what happens. He’s still rather skinny but seems happier than before and gets up on his own. Maybe he’ll be okay after all. Most times human interference in cases like this is for the best but this is one of those times where we’ll just have to leave them together and wait and see. We are not completely out of the dark but we’ll leave it up to nature.

After a tumultuous week, here’s hoping for a good weekend.

    Sometimes Mama just needs a little help before taking over full-time care of her little one.

    Here’s hoping Mother Nature and a heifer’s instinct will win and the little baby will thrive. Keep us posted, Leah.

    with animals, and with human beings … we interfere for the best but sometimes the best is to let things flow ….
