He was only two weeks old and shouldn't had been born yet. He was three weeks premature. The mother died giving birth to him. The vet told them if he ate that night then he would probably live. A volunteer came in every night to bottle feed him. He looked so little and frail but he was so cute.
The lady told us we could take him out and let him get some sunshine.
So we did. He just loved the sunshine. He also loved sucking on your fingers. He is a little dirty. He does not know enough not to lay in his own waste. Normally his mother would clean him off every day and take care of him. So the workers clean him up every day.
His name is Willie and he is a Charolais Bull crossed with some Holstein and Hereford. His mother was Charolais. We just love the color of him. He is two weeks old in these first two pictures. He should not even be born yet!!
When we went back yesterday we were surprised at how much he had grown and he was more active and played in the barn yard when they took him out.
That volunteer that saved his life is still coming in every day to feed him. She is dedicated to this little miracle and helping him have a chance in life!! They still have to wash him off each day to keep him clean. He will probably be the tamest cow they have at the park!!
