|Clyde's new mama, Rosie. He was so excited he got up on the stand with her.|
With the economy so bad right now, we knew we would have to give Rosie away instead of selling her. She gives a little less than 1/2 gallon per milking, which is plenty for a family, but because of her lumpy udder we didn't want to sell her and have the new family She isn't as endearing and sweet and 'pet-like' as some of the others, so Vet2Be decided she would be the one that would have to go this fall.
Sheepy got 5 calves last week. Two wouldn't take a bottle at all. She already has one goat that will feed a calf, but a single goat can't produce enough milk to feed two calves. Our solution was to put Rosie and Clyde together!
Rosie is doing a great job with Clyde. The photo above shows her first feeding. We're happy because she has a great home with a very important job, saving a little calf's life.
