Otis and Odin Leave the Farm

17 Mar

I didn’t plan on bottle kids, and three was a bit overwhelming.  I don’t have enough milk in my freezer to raise all three.  They were constantly under my feet and in danger of getting trampled while I was doing chores.  They are young and cute and might get a home as pets.  I took Otis and Odin to the sale barn today.  After I unloaded them, while they were still in the unloading area, I gave them a bottle.

They were there for a little bit, and then they were moved to the holding pens.  Otis looks like he’s about to get his bottle squished out of him, but Odin looks like he’s just hanging out.

They were really good to my kids.  They had an entire pen by themselves so they wouldn’t get picked on.  Since they had just had bottles, they took a nap.

Bottle kids don’t go through the sale like most animals.  Most of them run in to get away from the people when the doors open.  Bottle kids just want to stay with the people, so they get carried in.  They weighed thirty pounds together.

They just explore their way through the sale.

I love you Otis and Odin.  I hope you have a good home.

Here are some of the other animals I saw down there.
