Got a great “pet”.
What is the difference that you have hooves and horns cut. I love dogs and want to live the same way — why not consider himself a dog, reports the Chronicle.info with reference on the bigpicture.
“We took a calf, abandoned by their mother, and he thinks he’s a dog.” The owners of the farm, Happy Hens and Highlands Farm in the U.S. city of Asheville, North Carolina, have a 4 month old calf James. Funny baby feels fine, and the account of farmers in Instagram, where they often post photos of a calf, has already signed up 37.5 thousand users.
According to the owners of the farm, a 33-year-old Adam Hopson and his 32-year-old wife Emily, after birth, the calf was very large. Probably in childbirth there have been difficulties – some time in the baby’s brain had not received oxygen, because of which he was damaged. The kid didn’t know how to approach the mother, so farmers had to nurse it home.
Due to artificial feeding James did not quite understand where does the milk, so willing to lick everything, including people and dogs.
“James grew up, and it turned out that he was all right. He is very kind, sociable and active. The calf was able to make friends with the dogs, but with his flock – no,” said Emily Jamal hopson.
The calf lived in the same room with a couple of several weeks. During this time, the owners allowed him to play with dogs. When James was a toddler, he spent a lot of time with their four-legged friends, and adopted many of their habits. He is grown now, and it is not so simple.
“It becomes very large, therefore, if before, when he fought with our dogs, it was cute, now for them it is harsh and they don’t want to play with him as before,” explained Emily Jamal hopson.
Recently, the calf had to be moved into the pen with the hens, where he sometimes chases the cats. The bull settled two orphaned calves, which lifts the other cattle.
When instagram Emily and Adam became popular, they started to contact people who requested them to sell cows as Pets. But the pair refused all animals they are like family.
