Blu Vinson and his cousin Jet Boatman are the primary caregivers for a tiny calf named Bridget.

She was born to a normal sized cow the day before Easter but only weighed 12 pounds while a normal calf is closer to 80 pounds. Their veterinarian told them she may stay small or have a growth spurt and catch up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Because she’s so small, she must be hand fed. She gets a special calf formula mix every 4 to 6 hours. She sleeps in the bathtub and rides in the car in a laundry basket.

She has a collar and a leash, and Blu calls her his Easter gift.
