Seymour captured the hearts of many at the end of last year, such a sweet innocent boy suffering so much through no fault of his own. Surrendered into our care blind, and suffering from sepsis Seymour made a miraculous recovery! He fought septic arthritis, and severe pneumonia and beat the odds handed to him. He is now 8 months old and thriving! As Seymour grew, he would spend time with the other cows during the day. He loved his time in "cow kindy" and grew a lovely relationship with Luna. She took on the role of protecting and nurturing him during the days, and he would return to his little bedroom at night, and enjoyed a yummy bottle at the end of the day. Much to his disappointment, at the start of July (just days after he made the move from the old property), it was decided that the time had come to wean him from his beloved bottle.
Not only was he too big to be drinking milk anymore, but he had just moved in with the medium moos full-time, and it was proving difficult to give him the bottle without Teddy butting in and stealing it for himself!
He would stand solemnly at the fence line, awaiting his milk. But he was a big boy now, he didn’t need it, so we stood our ground and after only a couple of days he was no longer waiting. In what seemed the blink of an eye, Seymour was fully integrated into the herd, no longer our little baby!
He enjoys being out with the others, soaking up the space and grass and fresh air. He is in some ways still our little baby, coming for cuddles regularly.
He still remembers how we saved his life, guaranteed his freedom and did everything we could so that he finally could see more!
Seymour is one of the lucky babies who landed safely in our Happily Nursery. After being given a very low chance of survival, with the expertise of our team, and exceptional care this little man pulled through. It was months of rehabilitation, and thousands in vet bills. We would like to take a moment to thank everyone who sponsors the Happily Nursery. Without your contributions, we would not be able to be the safe landing that innocent babies like Seymour deserve.
