A Calf is Born, Photos of Emma

Emma was born on July 26, 2008. Molly is the first cow I have ever had and I was very excited about her giving birth. My biggest hope was to be at home and to be with her. As it worked out my husband, a friend and his 9 year old son and I were all here to witness the great event. Whenever I tell people I took photos they all have the same reaction: "Yuck!" It wasn't "yuck" at all, it was wonderful.

I am sure many people have never witnessed the birth of a calf, so I wanted to share these photos.
