I want Marcus to understand and appreciate farms, even if we live in a big city.
After chatting with my friend Kati, and her mom, Patti, we made a date to show Marcus some bottle calves. I will be the first to tell you, my excitement about spending time with calves far exceeded Marcus'.
Introductions went fairly well. Marcus wasn't so sure what this was all about, but he was willing to check out all the action.
|Oh my gosh, isn't it just the cutest how the little calf is suckling Kati's hand? Gahhh! I want one.|
We did manage to get some feeding time in with the calves.
|Left: Marcus in the background, not too sure about all this business.|
Top right: I let the little guy suckle my fingers. Seriously, can they come home with me?
|Marcus still needs a little practice keeping the bottle held up, but he had the right idea.|
Kati and Patti, thank you so much for allowing us the opportunity to spend time with the calves. We (I) LOVED it!
