Look what we found at the barn, curled up in the warm hay early Tuesday morning, 3/18/2014. She is a doll.
Dottie gave birth unassisted and baby was already clean.
We needed to milk Dottie and bottle the little one the first day. After she was strong enough to stand on those long legs, she found the milk bar and hasn't stopped eating yet.
Dottie is a wonderful momma and is doing very well in the milking department.
She still has some edema, but is giving 2.5 gallons OAD with the calf on full time.
Russell Ranch is located in beautiful NE Oklahoma, just a few miles from the Illinois river in Green Country. There are lovely rolling hills, lots of wonderful lakes and rivers, and forests full of wildlife.
