I returned from a trip to Little Rock just in time
to check on the calves during their afternoon feeding.
It was a dreary,rain threatening afternoon and already getting
dark when I made my way to the hutches.
The calves were already finished with their afternoon milk
and were enjoying the grain that had been added to their feed
bucket. With the threat of rain, I was glad to see that
each calf had their head down in the feed bucket.
I'm not quite adjusted to the Daylight Savings time change that
occurred this past Sunday but
I'm thankful that our calves don't seem to be bothered at all.
Their growth and development goes right on
as long as we provide milk and grain twice daily and monitor
closely for any illness.
