Bucket Baby

Mo’s prospects are looking up (see Mo the Mighty). She’s learning to like Calf Manna, and the supplemental milk replacer seems to be making her stronger too. Even better, we figured out that her mama, Meels, was bothered by her collar so not eating as much as she could have. Once we took it off, her feed consumption and milk production increased noticeably, so there’s more for Mo.

Mo had a messy bottom which was attracting flies, so I dunked her in a bucket of warm suds, swished her around, rinsed her in clean water, and dried her in a towel. She didn’t seem to mind. Besides, she got several kisses and a willow leaf snack out of the deal!

“My grace is enough; it’s all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness.” –I CORINTHIANS 12:9 (MSG)
