but...quick update on the calves as the vet was just out. she thinks emily is going to make it. we are starting to alternate formula feeds and are to give the both 60cc of kaopectate three times a day plus injectible vitamins daily for the next three days. todd? she is not so sure about, we should know in the next few days but she also said he could easily pass away and we may just find him the next morning.
she thinks emily did get her first drink of colostrum and this is why she is bouncing back but todd probably didn't because farmers don't bother with colostrum on little bull calves.
come on todd honey...you fight the really hard fight for life and we'll help you in every way that we can so you can win.
sweet, sweet babies.
also we looked at 10 acres in port coquitlam that has been offered to us to use to manage our growing farm sanctuary program. it was utterly and completely beautiful and we are hoping that maybe by next spring our little herd of four special cow friends can enjoy the peace and beauty (and ton of grazing) there.
