~bull calf~

Well, we have a calf at our house. 

It's the baby calf we saw at my in law's ranch last month.
Rosie, the momma, didn't make it and my in laws found the little baby this past weekend
without it's momma and not doing very well at all.
It doesn't look much bigger than it did a month ago.

My in laws do not live full time at the ranch
so they asked us if we would keep it at our place,
bottle feed it and try to help him survive.
They brought him over to our house on Tuesday
and I fully didn't expect it to live until we got home 
from our vacation last night.

But, so far so good.
He's alert, standing, eating some, drinking
and pooping. :-)

We're going to do our best,
and I hope he makes it.

Because, of course, I am already totally in love.

What a beautiful little guy. I pray he makes it and you get to enjoy every minute of the process.

So sad to hear about his mother. He's an adorable calf and we hope he does well.
