This is Bruiser–the bottle calf at my parents’ house (the hairier one. The other one is my dad):

Is he not adorable? Best of all, he is not an orphan. His mother just doesn’t have enough milk. Her name is Etta, and she is one of the three cows we bought to start our herd…oh, 15 years ago or so? She has had a lot of lovely babies and Bruiser has a great mama, PLUS he is sweet and friendly because he gets bottles. Check him out–too cute, eh?

  1. I love these pic’s, I grew up on a dairy farm and this really brought it home, I remember putting my fingers, many times in the mouths of those calfs to try and get the little buggers to drink. Thanks for reminding me of a fantastic child hood in a blow up pool as well. Great blog, I think I might just put you on my bloglines. 🙂
