Since my time away in Liverpool and Bradford I have been catching up with friends and with responsibilities here at home in Devon. Washing and housework to be tackled, sermon to be written for Sunday, pregnant cow to be watched in field outside the kitchen window.
I have posted photos of new calves on this blog before, but I never tire of the miracle of new life. This bull calf was born just before seven this evening, as I was preparing tea. By half past seven the calf was also having its first meal, up on its feet and suckling from its mother. The mother is extremely protective at the moment, so the photo was taken from a safe distance!
