March 6 2008 Baby Obama was 1 month I got her on February 14 2008 Before that she was abandoned by her mother we assume the other cows cleaned her off she was the heifer's first calf the calf's eyes are white (birth defect) or they didn't bond. My boyfriend bung her home, so I could care for her. I didn't want to, because unlike humans cows have to have first milk from their mother to live. I got her some colostrum from the Tractor Supply and nursed her every 4 hours for a month. She lived outside on my front porch inside a kid's tent. Yes it was messy and hard work. This video is just a glimpse of a few minutes of this calf's life. Tracey is a mixed pit bull (WE THINK) from a rescue shelter if you would like to make a donation to them here is the web address. http://www.angelsofassisi.org/ this video has nothing to do with Pit Bulls, they are great dogs. Now for the sad part Animals are unpredictable creatures, just from the comments I see people have no clue how instinctive they are. Tracey dog never showed signs of rage or ill toward baby. Tracey is a frog hunter my dog enjoys hunting and playing with frogs till they die. She's a dog, it's an instinct, and because she's a hunter my son goes with her to the creek and gets them. Tracey dog is not aggressive or in any way violent, but she is a dog and dogs HUNT. That's nature! The first week the cow would sleep in the tent & the dog didn't mind her much. She would lick the cow's butt which stimulated her bowls just like a mother cow, but other than that there was little to no interaction between the two. Tracy would lick her butt not to help the cow but to get rich stool from her. It's a dog & yes they eat poop, but in a since she was helping the calf. So, one evening I went with my boyfriend (I LEFT THE HOUSE) to feed THE HERD. Tracey was inside with the family & the calf was on the porch. When I came home the calf was on the ground & Tracey was eating her ear. I freaked out & had to whip my dog (for well being an animal) to get her to STOP EATING THE CALF. It took me weeks to get over the fact my best friend; my dog was so evil. Then one day, a month after this happened I was about to go outside to fuss at Tracey for being around the calf. Then, I noticed Tracey was just standing there, the calf was sucking on her ear. I grabbed the video camera & this is the images I filmed. I guess Tracy accepted this was a calf we didn't eat, she was "family" like her, how she understood that other meat we eat and this meat we don't is beyond me. But for the next 4 months these two animals went everywhere together. Baby Obama lived for 6 months, after she broke out of the yard (Keep walking though the fence) & weighted close to or over 500 pounds I had to put her in the field with the other cattle. A 500 pound cow produces a lot of "MESS" and when it's in your garden or porch it's not cute (MEANING THE NEIGHBORS YARD, PORCH, GARDEN). Though, I was not able to teach her things that a mother cow could, & for her age she was very small. The other cows killed my baby Obama, because she was an outcast. She was not included in their herd. Yes cows travel in herds (think pack). She was the weakest cow and was trampled/tossed for a salt block. We think so no I did not witness this or see it happen. We do eat meat, we do raise cattle but we DON'T butcher cows we RAISE CALF'S sell them at an auction. NOT ALL COWS/CALVES are butchered when taken to an auction. Most of the time a local farmer buy them to raise. The closest butcher is over 2 hours away. I posted this video because it is cute, but it in no way shows true animal instinct. The dog is getting her ear scratched and licking any milk she can from the cows mouth. The cow is trying to get milk from the dog's ear. In this wide world we cannot relate everything to a human's. Animals are different from us they have needs but they also have genetic programmed brains.Yes we need to protect them from cruelty, we also have to understand nature is cruel.So until people who preach about protecting animals start providing the funds then NATURE WILL RUN ITS COURSE.Tracey is still alive; in 2009 she was hit by a car the driver was so distributed she paid the entire hospital bill even though I asked her not to. Tracy dog is 4 years old now and doing fine. She still hunts frogs, enjoys stealing sweet feed from the cows, and sun bathing in the driveway. Cows that are not hand raised are not friendly & you can not predict an animal's behavior. I will be revising this as I see fit; answer repeated questions clarify for the disbelievers that animals are different from humans. One cute little video can bring out so much HATE AND RAGE! My goodness people channel that toward something good. Volunteer, donate, and adopt something.
