Bens Story Part Two

Bens Story – Part two

 

Hello again, I am Ben, I was born on 27th February 2019 about 5.30pm at Greenhill Farm.

I was laying down on my cosy straw on 9th March when the mummies and farmer friends came in – What is going on?? They didn’t seem to be making a fuss of me. They moved a big fat cow into another pen right near me – why is she getting all the attention I asked myself – I trotted up and down my pen trying to say ‘Hey I am here’ but they ignored me – this is not good I don’t like this ‘being ignored malarkey’.  Suddenly!!! This thing fell to the floor, they pulled it over to the big cow and she started licking it – it was another calf, I heard them call it Billy. They told me that Billy was my brother (when they eventually got around to talking to me again). Billy stood up almost straight away, I want to go over there and have a look at my brother but couldn’t because of this pen. Well, the very next day mummies and farmer friend came and took my fences away, FREEDOM!!! - I had a little trot around, WOW – all this space, I am not sure that I like this though – those big cows look mahoosive. Billy didn’t seem to want to play and his mummy stopped me going near him. The humans opened another gate, I had a look through and saw lots of cows and calves, my human mummies told me that these were my brothers and sisters, Bruce, Belle, Bryan and Beatrix and their cow mummies, my aunties. I must admit to feeling a bit (well, a lot) scared – my human mummy ran around the pen and I followed – mum, mum I tried to call – I wanted her to hold me and pat me.  Mummies went the other side of the fence, I wanted them back, I am not sure that I like all this space. I wondered around having a sniff here and there, I got pushed away by the aunties a couple of times. My legs started to hurt, I was tired and lonely but I was too scared to lay down. After a while mummies came back with my dinner – I was so pleased to see them that I actually said Hello (MOOO). They gave me my food and put me in a little pen with lots of warm straw – I felt safe again and curled up and slept. CRASH!!!  Aunties have knocked my pen down – I’m scared and tired but Bruce, Belle and Beatrix came and lay with me on the warm straw. This is nice – I am starting to like having brothers and sisters we can snuggle up and keep each other warm – I do think they are a bit jealous of my lovely blue coat though. I slept all night with my new cow family – I still feel lonely and hungry – my brothers and sisters have their mummies to feed them. My human mummies keep coming with my food and lots of pats and cuddles, they told me that I need to sneak up to one of my aunties and steal some milk. Because I am always hungry now I thought I will give this a go – I got pushed away a few times so needed another plan, one auntie was lying down so I lay next to her, she licked me all over, this felt different but I think I like being licked, I am now thinking that I am in with a chance of sharing a cow mummy, I just need to come up with a plan to make one of the aunties like me.

The next day, my human mummies and farmer friend came to see me, they brought my milk – it was good to see and hear them and get my dinner. What’s that over there??? I spotted a little face looking under the fence – Hmmm, I don’t think I need to be scared of it because it is small, it kept popping its face under the fence, I heard the humans telling it to go away, they said ‘Jen – get out’ Jen is a sheep dog. I think Jen liked the look of me because a bit later she came flying over the fence, the fence is much bigger than me and bigger than the humans (how can she jump so high)

 She nearly landed on my back, well she did land on my back but then jumped to the floor. A strange thing happened – I think I understand what Jen is saying to me ……….. I will let you know how I am getting on very soon ……………………

BENS STORY

Ben the Calf

Hello, I am Ben, I was born on 27th February 2019 about 5.30pm at Greenhill Farm.

My cow mummy had a very hard time giving birth to me as I was the wrong way round in mummy’s tummy. After a long time my Farmer friends tied ropes around my feet and winched me out. I was born very big. My cow mummy took one look at me and walked away. My Farmer friends rubbed me in towels and made me warm. I didn’t know how to stand up because my mummy had not taught me how to and I also had very poorly legs from the ropes and being squashed up inside my cow mummy but could not tell anyone, I did not know that I had to have milk to live and did not know how to suckle from a bottle so I was starving. My Farmer friends made me a bed and tried to feed me from a bottle, because I was not very well I did not want to eat, so they pushed a tube down my throat a fed me into my stomach – I did not like this very much. My farmer friends tried and tried to feed me, I started to look for them because they patted me and stroked me and talked to me. I now think they are my human mummy’s.  I was still too poorly to eat so I had to have the tube pushed down my throat again. It did make me feel stronger but not strong enough to stand up. When I was 36 hours old my Farmer friend held my head and put the bottle in my mouth, because I could not get away I started to drink the milk – it tasted good. I got a lot of pats and cuddles so when they came again with the bottle I drank it again – more cuddles and pats. I felt very cold so my human mummy’s put me a lovely coat on. I had my legs massaged which I enjoyed but I liked my head and ears and cheeks being scratched and patted. My farmer friends and my human mummy’s tried to help me to stand up – but I couldn’t, my legs hurt too much. I tried to move, I really wanted to get up, I pulled myself forward by my front legs and because I had tried to move I got lots and lots of cuddles. I thought I wonder what will happen if I ever do stand up. I looked forward to my bottle now so every time they came to visit I drank all my milk, they seemed to come more and more so I drank more and more, then I got more and more cuddles. I knew my human mummy’s were worried about me because they told me, they told me that I needed to stand up and get better, they spent a long time massaging my legs. After 3 days I tried to get up but I was just not strong enough and fell over, I tried and tried again and again but kept falling over. My human mummy’s were so worried they called for the Vet to take a look at me – he made me stand up, he pulled my tail up so my back legs went straight – my mummy’s held my front legs – at last I was standing on my four legs – it felt so good, the vet said that I had nerve damage and that it would take a long time to get better, I heard him say that maybe I won’t get better, maybe I would never walk, this made me sad but it also made me want to walk even more. They lay me down as I was very tired, the vet gave me some injections to make me better and told my mummy’s to keep rubbing my legs – this made me happy, I didn’t feel lonely when my mummy’s are with me. They bought me a new coat to keep me warm. They brought me a bale of hay and lay me on it so my legs touched the floor, I tried and tried to move my legs but it made me very tired. I went to sleep thinking tomorrow I will be able to walk. My human mummies brought me milk in the morning when I was 6 days old, they lay me over the bale of hay and I could drink like a ‘normal baby cow’. While I was drinking my milk I was stretching my legs. I drank all my milk then pushed my legs to the floor, I thought if only this bale of hay wasn’t here I think I could walk. They moved the bale of hay and I dropped to the floor, I was not having that – I wanted to stand. I took a big breath and pushed and pushed and I got on my four feet, my legs wobbled and shook but I stood there trying to keep them still, I stood there for a long long time. It made me very tired so I lay down and had a sleep knowing I would try again later. When they visited me again I showed them how I could get up, on shaky legs I walked around, every step I took my legs seemed to get stronger – I even tried a little jump and a little run, this does make me very tired but I am going to keep trying. I will let you know very soon how I am getting on ----.
