Make that exactly 31 minutes (I compared the time on my photos.)
Linus' belly is full of colostrum (record time).
Durvet calcium down the hatch (we used a bag for giving a calf colostrum). We didn't put it down her throat like you would a calf, but off to the side. Once we made sure she was swallowing, we lifted the bag into the air and down it went. (Until you lift the bag it has a kink in it and can't dispense liquids.)
She'll get another bottle tonight.
Placenta delivered and discarded.
And grandgirl Stella is in spa heaven.
Maggie is milked and her and Linus are ready for a nap.
