A New Baby!

Hi everybody!  Today I’m going to show you some pictures of a calf being born!  It’s actually quite amazing to see!


This is the very beginning.  Only the water bag is out at this point and time.



In this photo if you look closely you will see the front feet coming out.  I think at this point and time the nose of the calf was also there.



You can’t really tell with the water bag in the way, but in this picture the calf is about halfway out.  Everything goes by pretty slowly until the head comes out.  Than after that everything seems to go faster.  We waited probably around an hour to get to this point.  After the head was out it probably took only ten to fifteen minutes.



The heifer started licking the calf off to clean him up.  Showing signs of being a good mother cow. 🙂


Next, dad put the calf in a sled to take him and the heifer to a pen.  The good mother followed right behind.


Here is the calf in his pen.  The Heifer and her calf will head out to pasture sometime in the next few days.
