Farm Funny

2 weeks ago, the neighbor kids were banging on the door.

Katie (3 yrs old)  Uncle Seeve, there’s a baby in the fence!  A baby!  I saw it!

Kevin (9 yrs old) Yeah, and we know who it’s Mom is cuz it’s after-carriage is hangin’ out its butt!

Steve and I slid our shoes on and I grabbed the camera to go out to  see the new baby.  We did all we could not to laugh out loud at the way they put it, as they were SO excited.

Sure enough, the calf had been born within the previous hour.   None of us witnessed the event, but got to see the new baby getting it’s first bath.  And the after carriage!

If you are squeamish?  Don’t look!



And a few days later……

    She is one beautiful cow. Cute story! BTW, if you haven’t been by my blog the last couple of days, I identified the bird you asked about. It’s a Western Kingbird.

    We pass a dairy on the way home everyday. The “maternity ward” for the dairy is close to the road. You always know when a new calf is being born. The traffic stops and parks and people stand along the fenceline watching the wonder of birth. It is good to know Mom and baby are doing fine.
