Back in March, while on a drive, I happened upon a brand-new baby calf with its mom. Having just been delivered, and barely cleaned up, I took these quick shots from across the ditch as I didn't want to make mama too nervous.
Yes, that's afterbirth.
I continued up the road a bit, snapped a few barn/scenery pics, turned around and came back, just in time to witness the little one's first steps.
Pretty weak and wobbly.
Stumbling a bit.
But good to go!
I spared you the scenes of the mama cow eating the afterbirth. Hey, she needs her vitamins! :)
