Hands down, you guys are the very best. Thank you from the bottom of my
The orphan is now on a bottle AND I think I may have to put a ski mask on him to hide his identity. He is dashing up to other cows, taking a quick drink and then dashing away before she understands it's not her calf nursing. The last sick calf is now up and fussing about being pinned up away from mom. Life is better.
Cattle make wonderful pets, mine are so gentle I worry about them during hunting season. Around here most of the hunters are fantastic outdoors people and are a good source of info for lots of agencies, the exceptions are the ones that load up the campers with fence cutters, bourbon, beer, guns and ammo. They are the reason I use temporary electric fencing and bring everyone close to home until the season is over. AND the reason all my grandchildren have day-glow orange vest as mandatory clothing in the fall.
Thanks again and hugs back to all of you,
