We have a new addition to the Granite Glen menagerie…
She is teeny tiny and her name is … Toots.
(As in rhymes with ‘soot’ and not ‘loot’).
She arrived her about four days ago – motherless and dehydrated.
She has teeny tiny hooves – with a hoofprint no larger than a 50c piece.
Her jet black coat – yesterday at least – was dripping wet. We towelled her dry a couple of times…
She has taken to the bottle extremely well – there is nothing more nerve-wracking than trying to get a baby to drink when you know you’re the only food option for it. Serious pressure!
And have you EVER seen such adorable eyelashes?
This sweet little heifer gets plenty of TLC – with Violet leading the charge in the TCOT (taking care of Toots) department. Toots trots along after her as is she is her Mama already!
I suspect we’ll have another Bay Leaf on our hands… in the ‘character’ department at least.
Has that filled you ‘cute quotient’ for the day?
