Hay, Baby!

While many of the cows are eating the bales of hay, others are dropping calves and then resting with them on the "leftovers" in order to keep warm. The little black lump in front of the mom is a newly-born calf.

The afternoon I took this photo, two of the cows had calves. There are a bunch of babies out in the back right now.

It can be a tough time of year for newborns. Mothers do their best and dads are no where to be seen.

I would rather be doing most anything except sitting in the house looking at the sun shine on all this snow. Eating cookies sounds good to me.

I don't know about you, but my head reels with ideas and things I either want to do, should do, or wish I did — that I don't have much time left to do anything but take a nap.

Carpe Diem!
