It’s a miracle!!! Yes folks, we think she’s made it!!!! 🙂 I cannot begin to tell you how happy and relieved we are about this calf’s recovery.
Our little Daisy was seen frolicking in the grass this morning, trying to entice the young bulls to play with her. I think she misses her young friends from the main herd. She was constantly seen there with Mathilda, a young contemporary of hers. They were always chasing each other around, or grazing together, even napping together. So, tomorrow morning, we’ll let her and mom go back to their friends, as the little madam is eating and drinking normally again. 🙂 (The vet didn’t think that she’ll survive this terrible sickness, that’s why I think it’s a miracle.)
