Huckleberry, who was only about 5 weeks old at the time, started to relax. But his mom, Blossom, was still a bit shellshocked.
“She was very sick but still ate pretty well,” Bartfield said. “It was a good feeling to see them both lay down that night in the clean dry sawdust. The first time or two that I needed to take her by the halter, she would not let me get close, but I think she quickly realized we were just trying to help.”
Despite being sick, Blossom did her best to care for her baby.
