This baby wants her milk

Fiona is our morning delight! She sees us approach with her bottle and comes bounding to meet us. Her mother is nursing her twin brother, who now weighs 150 pounds to Fiona’s 105 pounds, but it’ll all work out. We have been visiting our friendly neighborhood dairy farmer to tap his bulk tank for raw, whole unhomogenized milk. The thrice-daily warm bottles have now dwindled down to one big feeding in the morning. Fiona has been observed to chew the cud and drink water from the stock tank, so with fingers crossed we are watching her carefully and hoping she transitions to 100% grass-fed in a few weeks. [By the way, we had named her Fiona after the Shrek heroine, because she is spunky and she is effectively an ogre in her mother’s eyes.]
