What would you do if you were suddenly entrusted with a three-day-old calf? Do you politely refuse or do you go out on a limb and embrace the opportunity?

Lacey Gray of Michigan City, Mississippi chose the second option. She had called a family member, a rancher, asking him if she could use a calf for a photo shoot with her two-year-old daughter. Laughing, the rancher explained that it wasn’t possible. “That is not how that works,” he told her. “You cannot just borrow a calf without the mom going crazy.”

As fate would have it, however, Lacey got her opportunity. The following day she received a phone call. The mother of a newborn calf had fallen and was severely injured. The rancher asked his niece if she would be interested in taking care of the orphaned calf.

Although it meant bottle-feeding the calf several times a day, Lacey agreed. This meant getting the photo op she desired, of course. But she had no idea what was in store for her.

Lacey has a two-year-old daughter named Kinley. This young girl bonded with the baby cow instantly. The calf spent her first night in the laundry room, where she was assaulted by an immediate barrage of kisses and affection. Kinley immediately fell in love with the calf, kissing her, reading stories and walking her.

The Gray’s named the calf Molly. Molly and Kinley quickly became inseparable.

The calf is now two weeks old, and Kinley goes with her everywhere. She likes to kiss her on the nose and both of her ears. She lifts up Molly’s face so that she can kiss her nose better. She is very protective of the young calf, sometimes even preventing the family dogs from approaching. Kinley wants Molly all for herself.

This story, of course, has only just begun. At birth, a calf can weigh anywhere from 50 to 100 pounds. As an adult, they can weigh well over 1000. They require a lot of food, and veterinary costs can be expensive.

Cows are also sweet and loving beasts, and Lacey is excited for the journey her family has embarked upon. Describing her reaction upon capturing the two babies together.  With any luck, Lacey Gray and her family will have many wonderful years taking care of this poor orphan calf.

Many people find rescuing animals to be an extremely rewarding experience. Rescuing and raising a cow is certainly more challenging than a dog or a cat, but that just may make it all the more rewarding in the end.
