Due to my father’s networking at the bull sale he went to at Sitting Bull Auction yesterday up in Williston, he found a neighbor who wanted to buy our two motherless calves that we had been bottle-feeding (the one mentioned below in ‘deadbeat mama,’ as well as another one).  She stopped by this morning to pick them up. It was a little sad to see them go as I loaded them into the buyer’s livestock trailer, but it will mean probably about one hour less of chores (preparing bottles and feeding them three times a day) for us, and the woman who bought them is pretty excited about adding them to her collection of bottle-fed calves, so everyone was happy as we saw them off.
