Here They Come

Ladies and Gentlemen, it's that time of year.  



Spring is springing, it is raining all the time, and calves are arriving.  



Not on our farm, mind you, but my sweet neighbors keep me informed of their new arrivals.  

They have a section of pasture dubbed, "The Nursery", and it will soon be full.  



This Mom had enough of me trying to sweet talk her into a pose.  



Two calves have made their appearance.  This high kicker arrived on Friday and the newest one arrived just today.  It's mom was determined that I was not to get a photo.

  2. We saw a difficult calf birthing once at our State Fair. After much ado it was successfully completed and the huge audience witnessing the event let out a large cheer. Youda thought the Vikingd had won a super bowl. Mostly city folk I'm sure...:)

  17. I love seeing new calves in the spring. I've seen a few this winter and they always worry me a bit, but I suppose they're tougher than they look. At least I hope so!

  19. Seeing new baby animals in spring is uplifting! I look forward to the deer having fawns here around May. They hide their fawns in our backyards when they go roaming for food.
