Beautiful Morning

Posted in Calving, Home, Photography, The Ranch by leahyetter on March 14, 2011

I woke up at sunrise to this beautiful sky. What a gorgeous start to the day.

After admiring the beauty and singing “Morning has broken, like the first morning”, I went to the barn to sit by and watch the heifer (first time mother) that gave birth under this morning sky. It was  obvious she didn’t understand what was going on and what she was supposed to do. All she knows  is she had a belly ache and then this thing that looks like a dog is laying on the ground. I spent an hour with her and watched as she licked and simulated the baby. At this point, the calf is smarter than mom because he knows what he needs and will not give up trying to get into “the pocket”. He finally did. Phew!

Then I came in for chocolate chip pancakes. More on the heifer and calf later.

    This photo is absolutely outstanding. I love the color here, but what do they say? “Red at night, fisherman’s delight. Red in the morning, fishermen take warning!” (or something like that). Better brace for that storm…
    Thanks for sharing the great photograph.
