MooSteer T-Bone, The Second!!

About 1 week ago, I decided to try the baby bull thing again.  (Have you seen the price of beef?!)

I picked up a two week old calf from a different farm that was only about 27 minutes away from the Homestead.

He was sassy right from the start!  Look at him sticking out his itty bitty tongue!


He is already heavier than MooSteer #1.
And has already been through a small episode of scours.
And is doing fine!
He's being both bottle fed and a limited time with Hershey each evening.

He is a RUNNER!! 
I'm ready to put him with Hershey all day, but am reluctant because I'm not sure how I'm going to catch him in the evening.  He doesn't yet know the lure of "Sweet Feed"



It's not the greatest of videos and the wind is making it all crackly.  I'll try to get a better one, but in the meantime, there he goes with the twins in pursuit.

The twins now live in the back pasture with their own "big girl" run-in.  The first few days were very noisy as they protested the separation from the milk bar!
