Cowboys and Cowgirl

Dandy, our bottle calf, is a good sport! He lets all the kids lead him around with the halter.

We have been feeding Dandy twice a day since mid-June. Last week we weaned him down to just an evening bottle. While I miss our morning visits, it sure is easier to stay on track with school work without that disruption.

Later this month, we will take Dandy to "Farm Fair". Its a special day for local 4th graders to come to the fair grounds and learn about many different aspects of farming. The kids will rotate through stations learning about things like corn, soybeans, poultry, and horses. We will teach them a little about cattle, with Dandy being our prop!

Awwww.....we used to have farm animals at our last camp in the summer. Loved our cute bottle fed calf. Of course the farmer was happy for us to do that for him all summer too- :)
