In the first week of June one of our cows gave birth to a very small bull calf.
He didn't breathe well and couldn't stand up.
Although we didn't really have a lot of hope that he would live,
it was decided to put him in the barn instead of a hutch to care for him.
Each day he drank a little more milk and with help stood for brief moments.
In just a few days, he was the favorite calf!
He became known as "Big".
To Hattie's delight,
Big loves being fed grain by hand
sharing a kiss.
I'm thankful for these sweet experiences with my family
down on the dairy farm.
