Updated: New Arrival at the Farm

About three this afternoon, when I was in the kitchen painting a still life, KDM called me from his cellphone and said: "We have a new calf." He was out feeding cattle and found our cow Daisy alone under a pine tree between the pond and the fence. Except, she wasn't alone. At her feet was a bundle of "tarpaper," wet and steaming, breathing and watching, on the very sunny spot mom had picked out for him (or her?).

Update: it's a baby bull-calf. KDM made a bed of hay for both mama and kid. They like it.


  1. AAAWWWW CUUUUTTTTEEEE!!!!!! I love cows - I bet you didn't know that.

    No, not just to eat.

  2. I do too. A farm just isn't the same without them. Keep eating beef too, the West wasn't won on salad (plagiarizing a great bumper sticker.)
