Yes, thanks to all your encouragement in comments on my last post, I'm here a week later.
It's amazing how accountability helps to keep you on track
Well, it works for me anyway!
What a week it's been. The big story being that we had twins! Alright then, it wasn't exactly WE, but one of our cows. To cut a long story short...I was walking back from the cattle yards on dusk in the freezing cold, wind blowing half a gale. My eyes were drawn to ripples on the dam...not duck type ripples...no, they were bigger than that. I went to investigate. It was a calf close to the dam wall but bobbing in the water. Yells, screams and next thing I know hubby is stripping off and heading into the freezing cold water, grabbing the little calf and pulling him up onto the bank. It was really hard work for him, and exhausting. I ran home for old towels and, puffing and panting, we rubbed him down, leaving the head so that the mother would recognise the smell of her calf.
We were worried because it was so very cold, but nature is incredible and this tired little calf was up and drinking from his Mum next morning, along with his sister. Unfortunately, no chance for photos, too much going on, but I do have one of the little fella a couple of days later.
This last photo is the dam at sunrise just a few days after the drama unfolded.
All calm as if nothing had ever happened.
This is how life is, one thing after another,
up then down, crazy then calm, despair then delight.
Just as it should be.
I hope your week has been more up than down, more calm than crazy.
Tell me about it. I'd love to hear...
Bye for now
