This scene will surely play itself out again, and probably soon. I took this picture before we departed the dairy where we get our bottle calves. It was much too cold outside to use a stock trailer so we loaded up the three calves in a stock tank placed in the back of the explorer. Now that's putting the Utility in "SUV."
The next round of calves is due to hit the ground any time. Each birth brings us a 50/50 chance at getting another bottle calf (she only sells the bull calves). This time we're ready with six stalls and all the necessary equipment (buckets, bottles, nipples, etc).
