John Made A Mistake
The first one ever NOT. Remember Crooked Foot and her new calf that I wrote about a few days ago? Well Crooked Foot didn't even have a new calf. No wonder it wasn't always with her and no wonder she didn't seem to give a hoot where it was. Yes the baby was nursing Crooked Foot but it was stealing milk. We're gonna have to teach that baby The Ten Commandments. Yesterday it was with it's real mama and it is a twin and it is the smallest of the two. Guess mama gets confused and John was confused too and I stay confused. Today we caught the little thing nursing on another mama. Guess you gotta do what you gotta do when you're a twin and the smallest one and mama forgets she has two. They have a lot of acres to roam around on so they do tend to get seperated at times. It is learning to take care of it's self and smart too. It picks a cow that has a calf and it picks a time when her calf is around and the cow is grazing so she is preoccupied and thinks it is her own calf nursing.
