Four More Babies

Did I ever mention that I love January and February? 

These months aren't great just for the cool crisp mornings, short days and occasional sprinklings of snow.  I love seeing new the baby calves learning to walk and run. I love seeing the mothers protecting and caring for their new treasures. I love seeing what a new baby brings to the ranch; a sense of freshness and joy... if you can understand that in an animal sort of way.

I went out to check on the cows and their babies yesterday.

This is how it went....



Luckily for me, and the cows, we have an understanding, a sort of mutual agreement that says....

I'm coming in the pasture, don't mind me, I'm just looking.
They look back. Eyes wide sometimes.
But then they remember it's just me, the one who comes around and gets close enough to touch but doesn't, most of the time, and makes a clicking noise with a black box [my camera].

If I could sit there among them for hours I would.  I love watching them. I love taking pictures of them.  They let me.  One day I hope to be able to touch a baby without the mother getting too anxious.  I will try with Daisy's [my cow] next baby.  She is ready any moment.



 For now, I'm happy just seeing all of the beauty in them.  On the outside you see just a baby calf.  But when you know the parents [bull and cow] and see how beautiful the calf came out, you have an understanding.  This little guy looks just like his dad, Red-Bull.  Red-Bull was sold so seeing his little off-spring brings a smile to me.



This little guy got a bad rap!  When the cowboys recorded his birth they made mention that this mother cow had an ugly baby calf! How could they say that?


To me, he is gorgeous! I love his markings and coloring, especially his legs which look like they are dusted with snow.  He is a bit gray rather than black, but they always change by the time they are a yearling.  I love him no matter what color.


I posted this picture to show you the enormity of the mother and how tiny this little one is.  Luckily for the Angus cow, it was probably an easy birth...the smaller the better.  She is a protective mama.


Hope you enjoyed...until the next ones are born!
