Calf with laryngitis

Cliff's brother brought a little heifer over here; she will be company for Bonnie after we take Sir Loin to the butcher shop on June 29.  Unfortunately, she was nursing her mom right up to the time she came, and now she wants milk.  She wants her mommy.  She wants to go home.  

We turned her out with Bonnie and Sir Loin, but in her frenzied search for mom, she got out and wandered to a nearby farmer's place.  He kindly brought her home, and we're keeping her in this small pen until she gets over pining for her home.  She has bellowed and bawled so constantly that she now has laryngitis.

aww poor little thing. I know she'll be fine a day or so. But it's still sad.

I remember visiting a relative's farm who had just separated some cows and calves and the noise was deafening. Both moms and babies were bawling.
