G emailed me last night from work about a bull calf he found on the net. All I told him was do whatever he wanted. He's the one thats into cows not me. Well he got in at 6 am and went to bed so we never talked about it till noon today. The calf is 2 months old, bottle raised and his buddy just died and he is depressed and not eating. The lady was worried about him and wanted to sell him hoping to find him a happier place. G wanted to raise him and sell him in a year. I get too attached to animals, especially bottle raised babies to get ride of them much less take him to auction where G wanted to take him. I would have to go vegan. Anyway, he talked me into it. We went to LA to get the calf. His name is Boudreaux. He is precious. But he is so tiny. He's not even as big as my 125# goat. And me and him are already attached like I knew we would be. He is eating and doing great. No problems. And G said,"Boudreaux may tunr into something we have to just cut and keep him till he dies like the rest of the animals here."hahahaha.....Got Boudreaux and looks like I will get me way too. I'll get a picture tomorrow and post. I just can't get over how small he is. I better get to bed. We are going to take him to the vet in the morning and have him checked out. nighty night !! AFter I go back out nad check on him again. hehehehe.......

Boudreaux! What a great name for a critter, especially one from Loozyanner.
We always named all of our critters but that didn't stop us from doin what was necessary when the time came.

Oh, I can see it now...Boudreaux gets a growing spurt under your care and ends up curled up on the rug in front of your fireplace, topping 600lbs, wearing a custom made flea collar. LOL!!!

Yep, that's what's gonna happen for sure. He'll be out in the snow with a hand-knitted blanket duct-taped to his furry little body.

did you ever see the ear things they put on calves , maybe it,s just up here in canada but some farm ladys started making ear mittens for their calves and before you knew it they had a thriving bussiness ,i think it was in SASK. where they were and i guess the calves ears would freeze when they were small,anyways they made the news and everybody got a chuckle and the ladies made some money , and i guess the calves were happy,they sure looked funny but weren,t complaining haha.
