This is the little bull calf I bought Monday . He is doing really good. I got colostrum in him and a round of shots. The jersey is letting him nurse,so I think the little guy is going to make it.
Helpful Hint : If you you see that orange thing. It's a dog harness. It's very helpful to control the little boogers. It doesn't choke them and it's very easy to lead them or hold them still.

Good for you Joy! :clap: I have to admit I was looking forward to seeing color when I opened your post, but thats a cute little guy, and $25 is a great deal, especially with a nurse cow. I like the harness idea, I use halters, but the harness is better yet for a baby.

He looks like he's made of velvet or velveteen. I like the dog harness idea, I'll keep that in mind in the future.

Good deal. Good luck with him.

Thanks all,Ha ! I loved the responses. A seeing eye calf LOL. Now that's funny.No he doesn't chase the cats yet. I'm more worried about him chasing cars and peeing on trees. :lol:
Workinonit, he does have a beautiful velvet coat. His coat is so soft.
The harness does work real well guys. I started using a dog harness on a calf last summer. The little stinker wouldn't stay still. I had my dog there ,so I borrowed her harness. They don't seem to fight as much as they do with a halter.
He doesn't have a name yet. Give me some ideas.
