Update on Popsicle
Remember the calf I posted about yesterday. We had her in the house Sunday night/ Monday morning since she was born in the below zero wind chills and tried to freeze to death. My husband had her back with her mom later that day. Her mom is a heifer (think basically a teenager, not too bright and a little clueless, first time mom) so she needs a little more help. Popsicle, the baby, is a little slow catching on to nursing, but seems to be getting it, her mom is being a little difficult and keeps wanting to kick the baby. She seemed to be doing a little better with it all yesterday though. The hobbles on her back feet preventing her from kicking may be helping.
