This morning a little baby was born... a little black baby calf.
We didn't get to see the actual birth, but we saw the baby just shortly afterwards. My parents raise pasture-grown, grass-fed beef and they have a pasture full of pregnant mamas. This was the first birth of the year.
Getting to see the little calf protected and loved by his mama and nursing for the first time was so sweet I found myself blinking back tears. The wonder of it...
We walked quietly away when the new baby closed her eyes and looked ready for a rest after her exciting morning.
I just couldn't wait to share her with you.
