Things like this happen, and hopefully she will continue to improve.then there are the problem calvings , the neighbor called for help the other day, and Martin and I went to assist in a calving , of one GINORMOUS calf !
It doesn't always go that well, and there are losses , which are frustrating and devastating , but part of it all the same . My dad reminded me today after a fairly rotten situation here , of something my late Uncle Albert used to say "if you can't handle dead stock, you shouldn't have livestock" or something to that effect. Sad but true , it comes with the territory, it is absolutely not the goal , but it happens.
Sometimes, a perfectly simple situation goes horribly wrong in the blink of an eye. But thank goodness, more often than not ,it goes well.
And sometimes if you are very lucky and quiet, and the timing is right , you get to witness it going right , in the very best way!
Caution, while the following pictures are a natural thing, they may be more graphic than some prefer to see
