When driving over to my stitching group
I couldn't help but notice
all the fresh little faces
with big eyes
and of all different colors.
It’s that time of year again:
spring calving for area ranchers.
This little one has already outgrown his wobbly legs,
as they learn to walk and run in no time.
The mother stayed close to her calf,
as she looked at me with a watchful eye.
I just zoomed in from across the road.
Didn't want to disturb them.
I remember back when my kids were little,
we raised orphan calves,
bought at our local livestock auction...
bottle feeding them ourselves.
This is a photo taken
way back when,
of my girls,
Amy and Jessica,
out at the barn, with their calves.
Sometimes we had up to 30 calves at a time.
My husband rigged up a bottle feeding station
for all of the calves to feed at once,
so it made much less work.
I couldn't find that photo,
but it's somewhere.
Yes, having orphan calves was a lot of work...
but I enjoyed it...
now I just take photos of them. LOL
Hope you are savoring
your early spring days.
