Last week we welcomed our first bovine to the Snooters family!
Ashli is named after a friend who dedicated her life to animal welfare. She was tragically killed in a motor vehicle accident last February. I said our next rescue animal would carry her name.
Ashli is a little boy but in soap opera world "Ashli" is a great boys name! He certainly seems to like it!
Our little guy came from a rescue, which is not at all unusual....most every male calf born to a dairy enslaved Mom will be sent for veal slaughter...so sad but true. So many people do not eat veal because of the cruelty but forget about the dairy industry.
Little Ashli came here last Friday with his umbilical cord still attached (dried/but still attached), I was told he is probably 2-3 days old. We were suppose to get 2 calves but sometimes things change & no one can answer why. Hopefully we will get Ashli a friend very soon.
He is the sweetie little man . Friendly, gentle, funny & so curious about the world. For now he is living in the barn & being bottle fed but I hope to get him into a paddock soon. We will be having to fence off another section & build a "house/lean-to" for him before fall.
Welcome Ashli, we love you already !!!
PS... the tag in his ear will be removed SOON !
