And I said I'd never do it again? Yeah right!

Gilly with said new arrival........

Either it's Spring Fever or I am completely nuts. YES the above is a calf that has come to live with the Mad Bush Farm family for a while. We've named this little waif Lily. And guess who gets the twice a day job of feeding said little madam jersey calf for the next three months at least...*mutters loudly*

 She arrived late this morning in the back of Gilly's four wheel all full of life and ready to um...bunt backsides and anything else within bunting range. As with all little calves little Lily focuses on only one thing in her tiny little life. BOTTLE!

When one is deprived of said BOTTLE! then of course hell breaks loose, and the human idiot that decided to take up the role of being substitute mother to a tiny bovine dictator knows exactly what she is in for....*sighs*

As you can see from the said incriminating photos anything will do as something to suck on until the bottle has returned at stated time of 4 pm...and then in the morning at 8 a.m. *considers the drooping eye lids and the 'oh heck here we go again' line* Well anyway she is cute, too cute as all little jersey calves are (Terrorist is still too cute for her own good and currently awol at my neighbours - again). She was calved on September 18th so a bit too late for calf day at the school the kids go to - but we're taking her anyway just so she can join the parade for a bit of fun. She'll be heading to her real owner's place after weaning. But for now for a good and dear friend we'll be looking after this little monkey. Now will someone PLEASE call the men with the white coats to come and take me away.....oh nuts!
