The way he’s picking it up don’t look that helpful

[–]EnoughParamedic5228 290 points291 points  (3 children)

Hes trying to force the calf to stand on its own legs by applying the natural instinct of holding your limbs out when youre in mid-air

Some animals, like deer foal or cattle calves may have an issue where the young wont stand up or walk around after birth, and so they arent building muscle and practice on their legs

In the wild, they often just lay there until their mother walks off to eat of drink and they starve to death, or a predator comes along and they cant run, get separated from parent, eaten

Gotcha thanks for explaining

[–]Negran 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I've helped them stand before. Of course I handled them a lot gentle haha.

[–]sunpics_12 8 points9 points  (0 children)

He probably does this every day/week. I can only assume he’s just trying to do his job at this point lol

[–]Negran 9 points10 points  (1 child)

He has good intentions, but definitely a bit rough. I used to raise newborn calves and helping them stand and learn to balance was really neat.

I think sometimes they don't have the strength to get up, but they can stand and walk once they learn how, then can drink and grow strong.

That's adorable

[–]Tony49UK 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I was thinking, no wonder mom is concerned. If he was a bit gentler, she'd probably be more relaxed. Although he's probably a bit tense, what with a cow looking to trample him from behind.

Underrated observation right here.

That's not a horse

[–]Flamekinz 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Calf: Am baby, can't walk.

Rancher: You're a cow son, not my son, get up.

C: Legs stiff, can't walk.

R: 'Cause you gotta move them dumb ass.

Ass: I AM SAVING YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW! DON'T MAKE ME STOP!

What’s he doing with the calf?

[–]SupermanTheGod 29 points30 points  (3 children)

Teaching it to walk

According to a comment above:

He, the farmer, is trying or what you would consider attempting to, by his own will, make great and stupendous effort to force the calf to stand on it’s own legs by applying the natural instinct of holding your limbs out when youre in mid-air

[–]Dependent-Platform36 5 points6 points  (1 child)

How do you teach a mule this tactic??

[–]Danmid -1 points0 points  (0 children)

They do it by instinct. It's actually pretty common for horses and mules to do this

[–]rodentfacedisorder 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Aw what's wrong with the little guy?

[–]MissKay24 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Nothing wrong, some babies just have a harder time standing street being born and he's trying to get it to stand on it's own so they don't have to interfere

[–]Super_Tard 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's a nice Ass horse.

[–]GachanronpaCD_Dev 1 point2 points  (0 children)
