As well as engaging in outdoor activities with Lawson and Bella.

“I believe he views himself as more sophisticated than others; he does not consider himself as a calf. He’s up on the back porch, taking in all the comforts, yet he glances over at them in the pasture.

“He enjoys socializing with both people and dogs.”

“He enjoys the attention Bada gives him.” He reacts to her rather well. She is with him all the time, constantly brushing, licking, and cleaning his eyes.

“She watches him while he’s not around. She follows him and goes with him. She gives a lot of her time away. She has been outstanding.

Coral has promised to provide Buddy with a lifelong home.

Coral said that she was “totally exhausted” and had unfortunately died by the time they were able to free her.

Despite the heartache, the calf’s eagerness to participate in their activities led to his being well-liked by the couple’s two kids, Bella, 12, and Lawson, 10.

“Buddy plays chase with Bella and runs beside the kids when they’re on their bikes outside,” Coral said.
“He has adapted extremely well and is very affectionate toward us.”
Despite Buddy’s strong sense of belonging, the home is still off limits, and he sleeps on their farmhouse porch.

Given that he presently downs 10.5 pints of milk a day and will weigh 95 stone when fully grown, he could soon overflow his bed.

Coral said, “But he will always be our pet bull, that’s for sure – no matter how big he gets,” indicating that Buddy, on the other hand, will have a lifelong home.
