He is eating well, though about 2/3 of what a normal calf would at this point. He even tries to lick himself. But his upper lip is still swollen on one side, and the torn bottom lip is permanent.
His breathing is much, much easier. He still has a bit of a head cold, though, and his gut isn't working quite right yet. If that will straighten up, he should continue to get well.
We're calling him Bubbles. Scott Townsend started it by calling him Bubby.
Checking the herd the last couple of days, we think we know which heifer was his momma. She's healthy, but won't be able to take him back, unfortunately. So looks like we'll be raising him by bottle and bucket for the next several months. Come on by; you can help with the feedings.
