No matter the species, a mama's love is a sight to behold.
A few days ago, we went for a walk down to the neighbor's barn about noon to see if there were any new babies. We saw one cow who appeared to be near birthing. She was standing up, glancing anxiously at her sides, with some fluid coming out of her vaginal area.An hour later, we went back, thinking the mama would still be in labor, and the baby was already nursing! We didn't see the birth, but we sure were close. Apparently the cow hadn't delivered the placenta yet, but she was already doing a fine job of mothering.
