I always wanted a pet cow, like on City Slickers
Jogging with a cow looks like sooooo much fun haha
Norman....NORMAN! HELLLOOOOOOO..... LOVE that movie!
My Dexters were all pets as well as my breeding stock. I love cows.
~~Sharpie, he's polled so thankfully I don't have to worry about that. I had my Dexter bull dehorned as a calf, and I swore...SWORE...I would never do that again. All my calves born on my place after that were allowed to grow their horns.
As soon as the mud pit that is our small pasture (where the horses are right now) dries up, we will be backing the trailer down to the barn so he can go into the stall. If it gets cold enough tonight, we might even be able to do that first thing in the morning.
Hamish (that's his name now hehehe!) is eating very well in spite of the hard week he's had and the move today. He cleaned up all the hay I put in for him this morning, and this afternoon I put some calf creep pellets in there and he went to town! He's drinking well also, which is a big relief.
Thank you everyone for the help! I've not had a calf that I haven't had since birth (and were completely used to me from day 1), so I'm really not sure what I'm doing.
I'm already in love with him. LOL!!!
Here's a pic of him right after I put his calf pellets in the bucket. He didn't even know I was behind him taking a picture!
