Big love......

Some of the lows are pretty low here at the moment.............
I was on baby watch for our second jersey heifer.............
No Love had her calf last week.......she was up all was ok........calf was up so we left her as we would any other heifer...........but something was wrong a few days later........as soon as i saw her I knew something was wrong.......she wasn't well..........Mr Chooky was not here so I told him we would need to get her in the next day and give her some medication...............but it was too late........we found her dead.......I think she must have still had some placenta etc that she didn't deliver properly.........
The poddies all followed us over to where she was and Big Love walked up to her...........she mooed but it was a terrible sound.........I think she knew her friend was gone.........broke my heart............
the good news is though that Big Love is sharing some of her love and No Love's calf had been getting a drink off her.............
being so dry and on her first calf we have brought Big Love to the house yard into special care so we can feed her extra so she can raise both the calves.............
The girl on the left is Big Love's calf and the little boy on the right is her adopted baby.............nature is amazing....and devestating........
no names to busy to think about that.........
give me some suggestions.......

Wished google would fix this crap with blogger......not emailing comments...........
Catch you later.......
