New Calf

Last night, my dad and brothers picked up a Brown Swiss calf from our dairy farmer friends the Page family.  Mom and I spent this morning trying to teach him how to drink from a pail.  He’s not quite gotten it yet, but he was certainly hungry.  He’ll spend the next few months of his life as the star attracation while kids eat their ice cream at Rose Orchards.  He doesn’t have a name yet, but I like Bruno, Ferdinand, or Peanutbutter.  Any ideas?

The calf has almost figured it out…

But then he forgot.
