‘Miracle drought calf’ born with an extra leg on its back

Its owner shared photos on Facebook

A farmer in NSW has shared photos online of her ‘miracle drought calf’.

Melissa Culverson posted two photos to public Facebook page One Day Closer to Rain (Drought), but there was something unusual about the newborn male.

The black calf, which Melissa called a ‘miracle drought calf’ has an extra leg, attached to its back.

Commenters suggested animal may have a genetic condition, or that the leg belonged to a twin that had been absorbed by the calf in the womb.

Melissa said she hoped the animal would bring good luck.
