Learning to walk is not easy!
Here's the calf and this is what happened when he first stood on his own four legs, and tried to take a step. It seems like a terrible fall, but all baby animals begin life with wobbly legs. You can't believe the strength of the instinct within them, that makes them try again, almost instantly. This baby was up and drinking milk, 15 minutes after he first hit the ground. It's an amazing thing, to see the calves born, and watch them thrive.
We helped out at the ranch this weekend, moving calves and cows into different pens, cleaning barns, and doctoring.
