    Thanks!!:)
    I did notice that you post pictures of cows:) her mom is a jersey Holstein, her dad is well I guess we don't quite know but we think he is a Holstein Angus cross!! She is quite tiny.. she was a twin to a bull calf that died at 3 days old. She is only a week old. I have been feeding her lots of extra sugar water and Pedialyte to help her stay healthy!! When they are this small one bout of diarrhea can kill them!!!?

    I know this is going to sound odd, but I love the smell of baby calves, to me they smell like milk and hay :) And they are soooo soft!

    Ah, someone that understands me rotfl. I love farm animals. Some people just don't understand I guess :)
    Nothing smells better than a barn with horses or cows and hay, to me anyway.
    Cows make great pets too. Follow you around just like a dog.

    Mmmm the smell and cows, hay, the noices, the peace in a stable always bring good memories (both grandparents kept cattle and sheep) from my youth.

    I even could sleep in a stable hahaha

    My husband (city boy that he is) always laughs at me because I tell him they should make an air freshener that smells like a barn lolol.

    She is so pretty! I'm not sure where you're from but in the US, the city of Madison, WI has a farmer's market and they have cows and calves on the capital building walkway. They had 4 or 5 calves that were a week old then some that were a few months and then went on from there. I've always like jersey cows with their big doe eyes.
