The diversity of Indian paintbrush amazes me. We found each of these plants growing in the same half acre of sagebrush desert.

Remember when Wings had her breech birth? Well, once the calf was safely born, Hubby lifted a slimy hind leg. "It's a heifer," he announced.

Before Mayzie had her first calf, I'd figured that if it was a cute little bull, his name would be something like Maynard. (Mayzie's mama is Daisy Mae; her grandma was our sweet Maezie, one of the first cows we brought here from Montana.)
Mayzie did have a cute bull, but he's neither little nor Maynard. He's Kodiak.

Daisy Mae couldn't be more smitten with her little Smitty.
"It's crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe--the Creator of nitrogen and pine needles, galaxies and E minor--loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love." ~Francis Chan

Annabelle has Nellie.
Nellie's birth was rather dramatic. Her head was bent back, necessitating a good deal of careful en utero rearrangement before she could make her debut.
Much could have gone very wrong during the process, but all went right. Thank heaven, little Nellie was no worse for wear and on her feet in no time.
