Dairymom's Thankful Thursday

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.
