That's My Baby

That's My Baby
A mother cow stays close by her new calf. She will feed her and keep her safe until
the day that she is big enough to eat like the others and relinquishes the
need  for her mothers milk.

Hi Angela, have you ever seen a calf being born. I did once on my cousin's farm in Canada. A very interesting experience. One of the first things the mother does is lick the liquid off the calf. The calf can not even stand initially and when he does he is very wobbly. Keep painting.

So sweet, Angie. Was out and about the other day and forgot my camera at home and happened upon a mother cow nursing her baby. What a precious sight and I missed it. I really must get a Blackberry because even a camera phone photo would be better than no photo.
Do you paint from photos much?
