Calf - a definate improvement this morning

Again he wasn't where we left him yesterday, ie in the corner of the back of the nice, warm and sheltered bay, he was outside in the mud in the rain, man he's daft! :D
Anyhow I dragged him back in, I can't lift him, he then got to his feet and came to me looking for food and drank from the bottle, so that's a very good sign. Isobel has been such a good girl, and has stood so well for me to milk her and I've just got the hang of it too. A great housecow in the making.

So things are improving but we're not out of the woods yet. ONce he gets the hang of feeding we then have to get him back on mum, I'm hoping he works that one out himself.

Thanks for all the supportive comments.
