Cow and Calf

We saw a new calf at a farm next to Woodstock (Virginia). I snapped a picture while stopped at a corner and then parked the car to get more shots, but before I could get out of the car the farmer pulled up with a truck and took the calf away in the truck with the mother following behind on a rope.


  1. How lovely and rural. (And you have green grass too!)

  2. You were lucky to get this shot before they disappeared Linda, lovely rural image.

  3. Calves are so cute when they are little. I can see your landscape is really greening up.

  4. I'm surprised the mother let him take the calf. I guess she trusts him... Perfect rural photo!
