Pinkie is eating but not standing
Pinkie is eating well, indeed very well. She is producing milk which I am drawing off (not the easiest job as she remains lying down). She munches her way through lots of crisp, fresh grass. This morning I found she was especially keen on dock leaves. However, we are still to get her to stand. Yesterday she did manage to get onto her back feet for a few seconds but her front legs weren't able to get her up fully. We will try again later today.
She remains comfortable and alert but her not yet standing is a real concern to me.
There was one sack of dried nettles left in the shed from last year. We have fed them to Pinkie. She rather likes them as well.
