Lucy

Opotiki

Bay of Plenty/Coromandel

Bradley, 8

My name is Lucy. At 10 minutes past midnight, on July 16 I was born. It was cold and very dark. I was also wet and could not stand. My mother number 343, started to lick the after birth from me. I tried to stand but was very wobbly and fell to the ground. After a few more attempts I was standing although still a little unsteady. Instinct made me want to drink from my mother. She nudged me with her head to encourage me. When I got bigger I was taken to Calf Club where I won two ribbons that day. Soon I will be having a calf of my own and going to the milking shed.
