Bottle calves

The mom for the calves were either sold or died. So they are now being fed milk in bottles and pails.

When I first saw this I thought it looked like the cow was babysitting all these calves. I thought it was cute how this group of calves was just hanging out together.


The birth

Here is the birth of a baby calf.....unedited...well maybe a few parts of it are edited out. I am missing pictures of the rodeo that it took to get this cow into the barn. I don't have a picture of the cow eating away at the afterbirth. Or the dogs carrying around a dried up piece of afterbirth.

A little nuzzle between mom & Cocoa.

Looking for milk....at the wrong end...

And he found it!
