The Full Life

I often get asked "how do you not get attached to the calves?"  "don't you know they go to die?"  "they don't live forever" and a plethora of other questions about getting attached to animals.  Yes, I realize that most of the calves will only be in my world for about a year or so, and the cows maybe 10 years or so.  Does that mean they can't have a happy experience in my presence?  Nope.  LOL.  I think of it as fostering.  These critters are in my life for a while and fill my life with their crazy antics and personalities.  I can watch them, care for them, make their life as happy as possible while they are here.  They give me so much more joy than I can possibly give them.  I know they go away, but while they are here they fill my life with their cuteness  :-)

Check out some of this years calves and their mommas:

I call him Picasso...look at his little face!

I call him Si--look at his little white beard--LOL

  1. Sounds like you receive more from knowing them than anyone can imagine. Isn't it amazing how we can learn so much from the everyday things in our lives.
