spring WILL come
I saw the first new calves of the year this morning. It wasn't a safe place to stop and take a picture--in the middle of an S curve--but there they were, two black Angus babies about a week old. (I'm not good at calf ages, but I hadn't seen them before, where I drive by an average of twice a day, so probably not yet two weeks.) Still wobbly kneed and big eyed. Every time I see a new calf on the ground, no matter how cold it is, it's a hint of spring.
