Getting off the bus
The calves were tired after their very long day of traveling.
It took a bit of coaxing to get them to come down the stairs for the bus (or rather a great deal of pushing as they were unwilling to do it!)
We got them a drink, and gave them bottles before we even took them to their pasture. They seemed much happier just to get there!
We were a bit concerned about one of them that seemed to not be doing well. A call to the man from whom we purchased them from assured us he is just exhausted and would likely be much better in the morning. We were instructed to give them an electrolyte mixture before we went to bed. Justice and the girls said good night to the cows and went to bed.
Even Chris has said he likes the cows and helped to give them electrolyte bottle!
Still working on finalizing names, but so far, the brown and white one is Norman.
