A tale of two cows…

by David

…our first heifer calf finally…THF 3…posing with her two mamas.

The birth mother is on the left…TDA04…a pure traditional English Devon.  The other cow is a young cow whose calf was born stillborn earlier in the day.

TDA15 wandered around lost until this baby came along.  Whether she thinks it’s hers or just wants to help, we don’t know.

Fortunately TDA04 is an old hand and isn’t chasing her away.  I expect eventually both cows will wind up nursing her and this 65-pound heifer calf will thrive!

A happy ending.
