Floppy tubed!

OKay 1 litre of electrolytes in calf via tube! Phew! I have a headache now!

Still to give, 750ml milk and another litre of electrolytes. He didn't like it much as soon as he could he was up on his feet trying to get away from us :D

Funny thing we moved Floppy (the calf) out of the bay and into the warm sun for a while, he was on his feet and he turned himself around and started heading back towards the gate into the bay! He got the wrong side of the gate and got himself into a corner, so I turned him around. He then slosly but surely headed back to the gate again, this time getting it right and teetered back into the grassy part outside the bay and lay down on some hay! There is summat going on in that little brain of his :D

There is still hope, it nearly deserted me earlier.


  1. I have been reading your posts about the calf. It seems like Floppy is getting better but a lot of work from you..

    Oh, I enjoyed your Friday funny!

    Have a great weekend!

  2. He's hanging in there, just need to sort this dehydration out. The FF was good, needed a laugh!
