It has been a long day. Plenty of on-farm jobs today and stock work. Sometimes we just need baby animals to remind us that not everything in this world is terrible, that things will get better for us, eventually.
On a downer… a lovely bull we had purchased has an injury and looks like he probably won’t get over it, probably nerve damage. So if it is not the drought, it is something else to bring you down. Just another kick in the guts. And more money down the drain.
But on the flip side, I am able to find something to distract me and lift my spirits…I love newborn calves. Our latest addition and the last calf to be born for this year. The joy and hope, this little bull calf brings us today. Why is it that the presence of baby animals have the ability to cheer us up? Maybe it is the pure innocence, the curiosity or the cute factor. Just look into their cute faces and feel the love.
Take care, Karen.
