Marigold's Bull Calf



Maybe it was the influence of the Super Moon -- 
Marigold had her calf yesterday afternoon.
 
He's a sturdy little guy with lovely eyelashes.

 The father is taking it all in stride,
 having lost count a good while back of how many children he has

And a beautiful rainbow marked the end of a good day.

What a good looking little guy...why do the guys seem to always get the eyelashes that melt a girls heart? Well, his mom's anyway. Congrats to all involved!
