Tulip was grazing with the herd at South Pool this afternoon, but there was no sign of her calf – she had hidden it. Tulip being a trusting cow, walked me to the far end of the pasture to see her calf in its hiding place.
Tulip has been away from the herd a lot over the last few days. I knew she was pregnant and was not far from giving birth because her udder had dropped and increased in volume.
When I checked the cattle this evening, Tulip showed me her new calf.
Daisy and Jill are also pregnant, and I reckon there will be three new calves very soon.
The images below show the new calf, Tulip and the calf, and parents and the calf.
