Babies on the ranch

Spring is fun here. New colt and now a brand new calf. I bet it isn't more than 2 hours old. As soon as they are born the cow takes the newborn away from the birth site. The vultures and other birds want the afterbirth. After about 3 hours the calf was ready to walk across the field to a safer area. Mama kept a close eye on this little guy. She seemed to be a new mother, not very old.

About 2 hours old

Trying to get his feet working

Okay I am ready Mom.
