Bradley Tripp had worked with his calf Nibbler since June 17, visiting Alexandre Dairy every other day to feed and walk it, so when he was told to switch calves with another youngster last week, he grew nervous.
After a few minutes, though, the 8-year-old decided his worries were unfounded.
“This is as easy as my calf,” Bradley told his mother, Mavis Tripp.
“You can’t fall in love with somebody else’s cow,” Tripp retorted.
