A Tiny $100 Day Back At the Ranch

An unusually small calf

An unusually small calf

I have seen small calves in my time, but the last one born in June takes the cake! He is so small, the ranch tom cat is bigger! The tiny calf stands under his mother to nurse and still has three inches of clearance! The calf is very healthy though, solid red with a white tip on the end of his tail. Mother is very proud of him, but she does like to hide him out. It has been nearly three weeks since his birth and she still does not bring him back to the ranch headquarters with the rest of the herd.

It is unusual to have a cow that insists on keeping her calf in the pasture after a week. I am sure his size has something to do with it. One thing is for sure, he will soon catch up with the other calves in size.
