    I don't know the name of the Moo but she was one of the Herefords on the farm where we lived when I was born. That's my dad holding her and that's me at about the age of about 3 absolutely delighted to be petting her. One of my favorite pics. :)

    Awww. I love this thread. As a kid, my grandparents raised cattle for milk and meat. I remember one year, they had an orphaned calf. His name was, wait for it, Bully. His mother died of something, but we never could figure out what it was. My dad guessed a disease, because even the coyotes wouldn't take her body. My grandparents were big into the circle of life and they had this area in the woods where they would drag dead cows and let the wild animals eat before grabbing the carcass and burying it. They didn't lose many cows a year, so it worked out.

    Anyway, this little orphaned Bully learned very quickly that humans were his new mother. We would feed him every two hours and if he was hungry before that, all we'd hear is him calling us. If we didn't get to him within a couple minutes, he met us at the door to the house - no pen could contain that little monster. He was the sweetest thing and I still remember running all over the farm with this little calf galloping behind me.

    I'm not quite sure what ended up happening to him after he was weaned. My grandparents didn't want to keep him because we were a milk and cattle operation and already had enough bulls, so I think they gave him to a family down the road who wanted to get into breeding or whatever. He was completely tame, so he was a nice bull to have around.

    Your Daily Moo: Linkita!
    She is Lexus's momma, which makes her Lamborghini'a grandma.
    She is tiny. She in next to another small cow, and you can see the size difference.
    Linkita does not know she is tiny. She thinks she is A REAL BIG DEAL, possibly the Boss cow. She thinks that ALL the water should be hers and she should get a really big section of the bunk.
    The ACTUALLY Boss cow, Kluck, can and does pick her up and toss her like a rag doll, but Linkita is made of steel springs and spite, and learns nothing.
