We also took this little guy home for free. He's what they call a pass calf. He didn't want to get up so our friend told us when they think they're sick and won't move, they don't auction them, they jut put them down. ACK!!! They told us we could take him home if we wanted. Ummmm, yes please! I'll give anything a chance. So we got him home and got some milk into him and it seems he was just hungry and scared. He's drinking and moving around now.
Little man helping with chores. The cutest part? I walked outside to go to the barn and he had on this jacket and barn boots....no pants, just his little butt stickin' out. Him and I had a trip to Urgent Care today because he had a tick embedded in the back of his leg....UGH!! But fortunately it hadn't been there long so no scare of Lyme's.
And DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE FARMER DID TO ME TODAY!! We were trying to find the cattle auction and got turned around. He pulled into this parking lot, I looked up and there was Hancock Fabrics...with a 50 percent storewide poster. My mouth dropped open and he laughed and pointed at the clock..."Oh too bad we're running late." HA! There will be payback. :)
