    We also got another Little Calve Bull, He is a few weeks old and already knows how to drink out of a bottle, so hopefully that will do him some good.

    He looks like the baby I had living in my garage for 5 days, I hope you were able to find him some colostrum! You can get powdered colostrum mix from a feed store. Mine (not really mine) didn't get any til just about the 24 hour mark, but he's doing really well now! He wasn't really an orphan, just got off to a bad start and once I got him going I gave him back to his mom (who belongs to my dad). If he'd been a heifer I'd have probably talked my dad out of him, but I've been told no more steers (and you will want to castrate him if you don't have any cows for him, and probably anyway if you want him as a pet), I already have one steer. I never could get this turd to take a bottle, had to tube him until I got him back on the cow.

    And finally back with mom,

    And I took this one just the other day, he's growing pretty good! But he is a tiny thing, the other calf in the pic was born the same day.

    And this is the last orphan calf, Drama, my dad gave me, born in May, doubling my tiny herd, I now I have a total of two! Not counting my steer, he doesn't count because he's non productive.

    I raised her for the first 6 weeks on goats milk, then put her on my cow after selling her calf (also a former bottle calf). I've been waiting for her to give me a heifer forever, but 3 bull calves in a row so far, hard to grow a herd that way.
    Drama w/ her foster mom Panda,

    And this is my steer Mickey, my first ever bottle calf,

    Sorry for the over share, I love calves, and that one just looks so much like my little almost calf, I've missed him (but not the work), and I'm alittle envious!

    Awww he is super cute! I want to raise cows. When I went to my aunt and uncles ranch in cali, they had an orphan calf and I got to help bottle feed him, it was so much fun I loved it.

    Alright, Quick Update.

    We had him outside walking around a bit, and he got very tired, so we took him inside, and syringed him as much as we could.
    My dad got worried so he is being brought to the vet For cows lol.
    He will be given a Colostrum Shot and possibly an IV, Etc.
    He will be there for 2-3 Days.

    For now I can let you all Coo over my other bottle calf :)
