I love seeing fresh-out-of-the-womb calves like this little one. I’ve yet to see a mother cow actually giving birth, but I have see quite a few wet babies, just minutes after their birth.
When we first pulled up in the feed truck, the calf was all by his lonesome. Seeing this new baby alone freaked me out a bit. Probably since I just had a baby a few months ago and cannot imagine leaving her by herself right after she was born. Not to worry, the mother came a runnin’ as soon as I climb out of the truck to take some pictures.
I think my all time favorite pictures of cows include a mother and a baby.
And their signature sniffing to double check that it is indeed their calf. I love it. It makes me happy.
Have a great weekend, folks!
