Lost-Animal Farm??

On Friday night, after work, as my hubby was driving home, he came across a bull calf trying to cross the highway with no mommy insight. He spent almost 2 hours in the rain, trying to find his mommy with no luck. At midnight, he gave up the search and left the calf in an open field in the hopes that the owner or mother would come looking for him. He felt really guilty though, so first thing in the next morning he went out to see if someone had found him and lo and behold, there stood the little one in the same spot hubby had left him. So in an attempt to find the owner's he went around a few neighbouring farms to see if any of them were missing a calf. No luck... He came across some traffic officer's who suggested he take the little guy home. At home we called the SPCA and because they already have their hands full with lost animals, they suggested he just keep him. We've named him Bruno and he's now my Mother In Law's baby :).

My in laws have a super chunky sausage dog, Coco, whose taken on the amazing role of mommy and protector of Bruno.

But not everyone is a fan! Rudolf the impala has since absconded the garden...and will not come back to the garden if the lil bull is still there (much to my Father in law's delight...too many gardeners spoil the garden LOL).

Hope everyone had a super weekend.
