KITTEN and CALF: BFF


Posted from the New Market Daily Chronicle


The sudden drop in temperatures was not the only thing that left Shirley Findel speechless last weekend.

Shirley had an unusual surprise awaiting her last Saturday morning upon the completion of her chores. In the back stall of the portable farming trailer, Effie, Shirley’s prize-winning, three-year-old heifer had delivered her calf… two weeks early… with no assistance.

Well, that was not quite true. Apparently, Freckles, the Findel’s five-year-old mouser for the farm, had assisted in the delivery.

Freckles could be found busy the entire morning giving supportive help with keeping the newborn warm.

Mother, child, and Freckles are all doing well.
