A Problem

Baby Bliss here won’t suck. She is not off to a good start, she is the one that needed warming up, I am wondering if she is a bit …well, you know, dopey – brain dead. It happens sometimes. I have tried really hard to get her to suck but her tongue is lazy and she just doesn’t seem interested in trying. In the end I resorted to using the drencher to deliver her milk direct to her rumen. I am hoping that a I can get her sucking on a ‘peach’ teat tonight.
I really didn’t want to have to hand rear one, we got five calves because the feeder serves five, nice and quick and easy, but best laid plans and all that.
Oh well…..moving on, meet Panda and Gerbil –

and the ‘meat-heads’ who will probably never get names beyond 167 and 168.
Its a glorious day of possibilities – I am off to enjoy it…
