Cassi Snell’s daughter, Cadriene Snell, a Chisum seventh grader in FFA, found a baby calf born in the early morning hours Feb. 15 while feeding cattle with her dad. She actually found two, but one didn’t make it. She was determined to save the one that did. So, she got the calf into the pickup and brought it home, where the family put the calf in front of the fireplace to warm her up. After about an hour, the calf stood up but was too wobbly and fell. Within another 30 minutes, she was up and walking all over the place following Cadriene like a dog. That afternoon, the Snells reunited the calf with her mom after getting her mom into the barn. The baby calf is now named “Lovie” and is thriving thanks to Cadriene and her quick response. “I don’t know if Lovie will ever make it to the show ring with my daughter but I know they will forever have a bond,” Cassi Snell said.
