Trinity and Son

We were up milking late last night, but it seems it was enough to get some milk into the little guy and relieve some pressure and pain from Trinity's udder. Also, I thought to remove Trinity's grain to slow her milk production. She still had plenty of new hay, but until her udder softens up a bit, we'll watch how much grain she gets. She seems happy with the hay right now.This morning, the buckling was nursing, with Trinity talking, but she sounded a bit pained yet. Nonetheless, she is standing still for him, and all is in her control now. Phew! Now we can all relax.

I'm amazed at how big the bucklings are. And, if only human mothers were all as loving...sigh.
