Cow with new calf

I saw this cow with her new calf on my way to my daily walk. Newborn calves tend to have a similar look about them. They’re very clean and bright and they have no idea what’s going on. They get on their feet pretty quickly, but there’s a shaky period until they figure out what legs are and how they work. They don’t stray far from their mothers, particularly when there’s a strange two-legged creature in the vicinity. And they can’t go long before they collapse and need to rest.

Mind you, compared to how I was as a child, they’re positively turbo-charged in their development.

      They invariably have a look about them that says, ‘What the heck’s going on?’ But give them a few days and they’re jumping around, got those legs working the way they want, and generally having a grand old time.
