Farm

We rent a house in Rural area. Owner has cattle on land, allows us to keep Jersey milk cow, and horses. Oldest daughter is champion horse trainer, won national competition, 300,000 Ruble prize. More about horses later. A few days ago, owner’s cow had second calf. She nursed older calf, abandoned new calf.  Children on walk found wet calf, brought to barn. In photo, second oldest daughter has coaxed the calf to nurse from our milk cow. We found frozen colostrum and bottle. Thawed colostrum. Calf accepted bottle and milk cow. Next photo two days later, calf is well.
