All Creatures Great and Small

It is FREEZING outside! -26C freezing. We had a calf born last night. The poor little gal was FROZEN! So picture my husband carrying the little 80 pound girl to my In laws basement. Now picture him wrapping her up in blankets and holding her in front of the furnace.Now picture her trying to suckle his pants...all at 3am.

lol...Just because we farm beef cattle does not mean they are not taken care of and loved ;)

I love the picture you painted with this story. Still can't help feeling sorry for the Momma cow who gave birth on the coldest night of the year (so far) and had to stay in the cold barn while her baby was taken into a nice, warm house. Who knows, maybe she was happy for the rest :)
