This is a longhorn calf, born premature.

His owners, my Central Oregon friends, Paty and Gerrit named the calf Half-pint.

Gerrit milked his mama a couple of times — although longhorns are not a dairy breed trained to stand still for milking — and bottle fed little Half-pint to make sure he got enough to eat.

When I met the calf a couple of weekends ago, he was running around and feeling frisky.

I think little Half-pint is on his way to becoming a Full-pint.
