I wasnt planning on buying a calf at the auction today. No one bid on him so for two dollars I figured why not. He is TINY. He was easily 1/2 the size of the other jersey bull calves. This boys cord is dryed up, while the much bigger boys had red new cords. He is 22" at the shoulders, hard to tell how small he is in the pics but my boyfriend is only 5'4"
So any thoughts? Was mom just malnourished, are some just born tiny, or is he potentially mini/part mini? If he has potential to be smaller, I have someone looking for pasture pet steer. What do you all think? His poo is like peanut butter now. I am feeding him cows milk, not replacer, since he is so small and fragile looking. Very perky guy.
