I was reminded today just how fleeting life can be; how it only takes a moment, a single decision, to end up with life or death. It never ceases to amaze me when livestock give birth to their young; it is truly quite a process. Lets stick with cows, since they seem to be my favorite thing to talk and/or photograph lately. Within minutes of dropping an 85 pound pile of slop and bones and hair to the ground, the old girl has her calf cleaned off, up, walking, and possibly even suckling, if she is lucky. Most have no problems or complications at all; it is all business and those are the cows that tend to be the best mothers, too.
Til the next time,
