This cow was in my driveway tuesday morning and would not shoo off. She turned and I could see afterbirth hanging from her rear. Still could not see a calf from the safety of my doorway so I scooted around my truck and got in. She was not bothered by me so I am thinking she is the same cow that hits my apple trees and currant bushes each winter and spring.
Once the truck was started the calf popped out of a flower bed next door and tottered over to its mom. Eventually they walked down the street. I think this is the second calf born in this yard in the last four years. It is a mile from Ft Rich training lands so she does not have to worry about bears, wolves, or coyotes.
