This week’s pet of the week is Brooke Murnion with her steer calf Richard. Richard Philip Murnion found his way into Brooke’s family this spring. His mother was not fit to raise him, so Brooke took over. Throughout the summer, Brooke taught her calf many great values and tricks. Richard knows when a stranger is near and he will bite their fingers if they get too close. He knows how to bow, lead, pull a sled, and he’s even saddle broke! His favorite snacks are corn and cake. You’ll never find Richard far from food, his favorite spot to lay is right by the hay feeder. Brooke loves to give him hugs and kisses. This summer, she and her friends enjoyed putting roping horns on Richard so they could practice their roping. Brooke picked the name “Richard” from one of her favorite movies, “Tommy boy”. Richard is around eight months old and Brooke’s future plans with him are to keep him as a pet forever.

“He’s better than anything in the whole wide world.”
