Calves are very special living entities, and they have their own personalities, just like people do!
Last Friday, March 7, 2014, mother cow Anjali had a baby boy calf, who was named Amani. He was very strong right from birth, and there were absolutely no problems. He began nursing immediately and was quite sociable, after standing up and moving around the calf pen near his mother.
Then, on Monday March 10, mother cow Lakshmi had her own little baby boy calf, who hasn’t been named as of yet. Different than young Amani, Lakshmi’s young bull is shy and had to be shown how to drink milk from his mother.
Then another surprise! Last night, Monday March 10, at 7:00 PM, bull #3 was born! After several failed attempts, he finally stood up. We think that because he is tall and lanky, with long legs, that it was harder for him to walk. But now he’s jumping around the goshalla calf pen, along with the other two baby bulls.
We wish the three new baby bulls and their matas all the best, for a great life serving Sri Sri Radha Vrindabanchandra. Hare Krsna!
