Unfortunately, Jewell, Joey's calf, died that night...which was 2 days before Joey and Jewel's first fair. We don't know what happened. Just that, when Tony went to the barn the next morning, she had died during the night. Joey took this quite hard, as he was so excited to get up early and go see her, only to find out the sad news.
He didn't want to quit...so figured he would try a new calf. We tried to tell him that a new calf, without the training that Jewel had, would be quite hard to deal with.
He picked out "Sunny"...Sunny, so far...has done a GREAT job!
We will miss you Jewel...
