How, you may ask, does one lose a calf?

I'll tell you how. This has been a big lesson for us, this year.

If you are searching for a lost baby, you would do well to keep in mind, you were never meant to find it. You are only human. You are subordinate to Mother Nature. Do not under estimate Mother Nature. If she means to hide her babies from you, she likely will.

OMG! I'm so glad Baby Calf was found. I was dreaming about Baby Calf last night and rushed over to your blog this morning for an update. Hurray! So cute!

I am crying inside, seeing these photos. I'm a city girl ... no idea how cute a baby cow actually is. This is a profound but frightening lesson. Somehow, it makes it easier to deal with the murder down the street, which, sadly, is the kind of thing we deal with. A man was shot and killed in cold blood a block away from where we live. Still, i feel like crying about the calf...
