Not meant to be

Unfortunately our adventures in cattle farming has started out on a sad note. The calf that was born on Saturday night was not long for this world. By Sunday morning he still wasn't up on his feet so we scooped him up and took him to the vet. Seeing as we know nothing about treating sick calves and this little guy was three weeks early we had no supplies. Our vet felt that he had nerve/brain damage and was not going to last very much longer. But he said we could try and us being naive we thought we could do it. We worked hard to keep him alive but he did not make it through the night.
I am going to spare you all from the very cute pictures I took of him in his bed in the middle of my kitchen.
