This is what I like to see. A healthy calf and a good momma! I lost a calf last night… I was minutes late to his birth and the sack was over his head… no chance for the little guy. I hate that! I also know that it is impossible to be there for each birth, to prevent such accidents from happening. But still…
I tried to take video so you could hear this momma talking to her baby. Cows definitely have “baby talk”… It’s not a “moooooo”… more of a soft “meh”. Obviously I need more work with my new camera’s video mode!
As you can tell, today was sunny… a glaringly bright respite from the dismal overcast of the past four days. I could NEVER live in a rainy cloudy environment! Though the temperature was cold… down to -14 last night… the sun helps so much! It is getting some power to it. So to A. and V. in New Zealand… we’re taking your sun away from you! 😉
Speaking of cows…
Remember this one?
