For one reason or another, my parents end up with a calf that needs to be raised on the bottle about every other year. This year's little honey is Dandelion.....AKA Dandy. Like all the previous bottle babies....she is a real sweetheart. It is hard not to fall a wee bit in love with these precious little bovines.
Sugar Bear loves going to her grandparents house when there is a bottle baby. I mean who wouldn't love a chance to feed the baby? She takes TWO bottles these days.
She might be a bit of a BIG baby, but a baby she totally is. She LOVES her bottles. ♥ yummy...yum...yum!
and we love to watch her drink them. At least I do. I get such a kick out of all the precious little pieces of this calf. There is just something about that big wet nose.
and the drooly......foamy chin. I love that you can see her tongue in this shot. Like all mammals, she suckles the same....with that tongue. ♥
But honestly.....I'm sure you will all agree......it is the eyes that have it. Her adorable, get lost in them, big brown eyes. I think we can all admit that Dandy is pretty darn cute. Throughout the entire meal, this was Sugar's view......... (pretty awesome).
and this was Dandy's view.....(darn cute, too). What a perfect little pair they are, yes?
Don't you just want to reach out and give her a little scratch on her forehead? It's hard to resist.
I can't think of a better way to end out day at the farm. It sure was a dandy of an evening.
