The one who works hardest gets the bigger workload.

Grace has been giving SO much milk, I figured she may as well raise three calves instead of two.  We went back to the dairy from which we purchased Whitey and got an even bigger calf... not older, just bigger.  His name will be Newbie.  Tonight I showed him where to find supper on a cow, since he had never had any experience doing that.  It took awhile, but he figured it out and is now a very aggressive eater.  

Grace put up with all these little suckers.  

Later I went out to see what was going on in the stall the calves use for a home, and saw this:
Newbie and Gypsy are bedded down for the evening, but there is always that one kid who won't go to bed.  That would be Whitey.  



They look sweet.

Your Gracie is such a good mama. So patient giving her milk to 3 now.
