A New Baby

Yesterday around noon, a cow had her calf near the house. I had noticed her out there by herself and was keeping an eye on her, but missed the actual birthing event.

Welcome to the world, little one!

Let's clean you up a little bit before we present you to the world.

It's your big moment. Are you ready?

Ta Da! I can stand up mamma! I can stand up!

Yippee! I can kick up my heels!

Now I do what mamma does!


  1. oh what a sweet little thing!

  2. Oh, a new little life! Our neighbor has Angus so we get to watch the babies play when they are at this end of the pastures. I guess cows are pretty sneaky about having their babies.

  3. Awww! I had the privilege of seeing a neighbors freshly newborn calf and watched as Mamma cleaned her up and ate the afterbirth. I took tons of photos and thoroughly enjoyed watching the little one get used to her new world.

  4. How lucky you were that the mama chose just that spot so you could photograph it for us. Springtime is so neat in so very many ways. It's all about new life.

  5. Those are such wonderful shots, Anita. Looking at them made me feel happy.
