First Steps

Calving time on the farm is almost over. It starts in late January and finishes up around now. We have a small herd and have six new additions to the group. All born healthy and with no problems.

I was lucky to be there when this little one was born on a beautiful sunny day. I ran to get my camera and recorded her first steps.



Mama is licking her clean to dry her off. This is an important first step for Mama as it helps to imprint her calf to her. Within a few hours this little one will be trying to run and play with the other babes.
