so. Sat i was visitin a friend and he was tellin me about one of his mama cows that is just not a good mama. Said he knew she had calved and it took him three days to find the calf after walkin his pasture for hours. Mama was never around the calf, never bawled for it, if he got close she would not go to calf. Sunday he called and says that wench had twins and i had no idea! I was workin on the tractor and found a calf. All my other heavy bred cows are still in calf and she is the only possible mama because she is the only red baldie i gots. You want a five day old calf? I not sure if she will live cause she breathin hard and needs milk bad. But i am too old to bottle this calf and i do not want to shoot her cause she still got life in her. So of course bring her over. His wife says are you even gonna ask paul.... nope i will tell him you comin and he wont care (which he didn’t). I need run to the store for a nipple for my bottle cause mine is nowhere to be found doncha know. I also picked up colostrum and last stand. So here comes scarlett. Poor girl didnt even know how to suck. We got her to take a bottle and all was well. Then wed night she had a fever. Brought her to the house cause we thought she was gonna die on us. Got meds in her and syringed a cup of pedialyte in her every hour. Finally yesterday afternoon she started feelin better and perked up. By last night she was keepin her temp down without banamine. Today.... today miss scarlett is goin back to the BARN lol! She is full of sheselfs, has nibbled everything in the livin room esp toes she loves some toes lol! She also likes the recliner foot for scratchin her own noggin. And no. Paul is not nekkie in the last pic he does have on shorts. I am mixin cow milk, goat milk and replacer for her right now. Soon we will transition to replacer because my girls just do not have enough milk to feed her solely their milks. I only get a half a gallon from the cow of a mornin and jade gifts me 3/4 of a gallon a day. And right now she is drinkin almost a gallon and half a day.
