    Wis. farmer finds new calf has two noses



    MERRILL, Wis. - Mark Krombholz had to look twice at his new calf — one time for each nose. Lucy was born on his hobby farm last week. "I didn't notice anything too different about her until I got her in the barn," Krombholz said, "and all of a sudden I went to feed her a bottle of milk, and I thought maybe she'd been kicked in the nose and there were two noses there."

    The second, smaller nose sits on top of the first.

    "It's a functioning nose because the middle of her second nose, the flap would go in and out when she drank out of the bottle like that," Krombholz said. "It was kind of funny. It caught my eye right away, so I kind of laughed at that."

    Breeder Scott Grund said Lucy's noses seem to be working fine.

    "It looked like she was comfortable laying there in her bedding and breathing and spunky just like you want to see," Grund said. "It's just that she's got two noses."

    That kind of rare deformity is usually not the result of genetics, he said. But breeders do track such mutations.

    "We'll fill out a form, send that on to the company in Shawano and they will keep record of it," Grund said. "If by chance this would occur more than a few times, they would start looking at maybe the sire that we're using."

    Krombholz said Lucy, who was born May 4, will be a pet and bred if she's able.

    Some company keeps track of all of the mutations huh? That might make some interesting reading.

    That's what happens when you plow the livestock and not the fields!

    There are some crotch sniffers here that I'd bet have two noses.

    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.
