Have I introduced to this member of our family?
No, not Calleigh....but her calf Raider!!
This is Calleigh's bucket calf for the stockshow. Raider came to live with us in August at the young age of 3 days old. Yes, poor thing had to leave his mommy to join our circus. But, we Calleigh took great care of him. She bottle fed him twice a day for about 6 weeks.
This weekend is his moment to shine. This weekend is the stockshow. He will get bathed, a haircut, pampered and fluffed all to look his very best. He will be expected to be on his very best behavior. And of course, he will be expected to smile!! (Not really!)
Calleigh, I am so proud of you for the hard work you have put into your bottle calf project. I will be watching from the crowd with a huge smile. I will quietly root you on. You will do fantastic!!!
