Here is the little fellow – you can see the creek on lower left and top of hill at top
My husband climbed down the far side so as not to scare the calf . . .
My son tied off the rope to a stake and threw it down to dad, who attempted to tie it around the calf . . .
between them they managed to get the rope tied around the calf, just behind his front legs.
My husband says I have to tell you this – seeing him climbing up and down these hills, you would not think he will be 71 in a month! Yep, he’s in pretty good shape since he’s out every day - winter/summer, hot/cold, wet/dry – dealing with his animals. He climbs up and down hills and moves fences on almost a daily basis. When fences need mending he does that. His beloved gator will only get him so far – then he has to go on foot!
