Welcome to the World, Baby Bull!


A new arrival! I was on my way to the store when I spotted the mama and a baby  -- fresh out and struggling to stand. (The top picture was taken a few hours later.)


Getting the hind end up is easy . . .


But straightening out those front legs requires more effort.



He's gotta do it though to gain access to the milk bar.


Mama nudges him and moos softly to him and he tries again.


Oops! Face plant!


Of course a nosy aunt is watching.


If at first . . .


Try, try . . .


Almost . . .


Nope . . .


C.mon kid, you can do it!


And he's up!

What a sweet post...life renews itself yet again! Great to see those efforts that were the first things he had to accomplish, just to be able to eat.

Vicki, thank you very much for documenting this baby's first steps. Your photographs are remarkable, and so are those fabulous animals.

Congratulations to the whole family that includes you and John. He will soon learn what a wonderful world he was born into. Has he been named?

Justin has suggested either Cam or Newton (for the Carolina Panthers QB.) It may depend on how said QB does in today's game.

Amazing to imagine what those babies can accomplish so soon after leaving the womb. So sweet to watch them get to their feet. Glad everything went well.

I was rooting for the little guy.
