Today marks two weeks since the calf Rocky broke his femur at twenty-four hours old.  He’s been in the charge of the girls (our small mammal farm staff) on three daily feedings of five pints each of raw milk (colostrum, in the beginning), which is way more than you’re told to give them but very likely not as much as he’d have been taking if he could have been with his mama, and he’s never scoured or had a sniffle, and today he followed the girls into the calf pasture and had a run with the older bottle boys, and he hardly limps.  Yee-haw!
