MollyMoo

MollyMoo came to the farm in April 2013. She was about 24 hours old and rode home in the back of Jill’s suburban.

I have to admit, I wasn’t convinced she would survive. She had been separated from her mother in a sleet, snow, spring-type, yuk storm, stepped on by another cow, and was sooo little!

 But survive she did! The first few weeks I was making bottles every four hours day and night. She  had to wear a kid’s size vest to keep her warm due to a wound on her side.

From there, we increased the amount of milk and lengthened the time between bottles until she graduated to two bottles a day. From bottle to bucket and then to solid food, she went from that cute little baby to one BIG BODACIOUS BOVINE!

Did I mention that she is Paul’s favorite animal on the farm?
