Marveling at the new calf

Our Calf is here!

On a beautiful, still, moonlit night this little bull calf was born to Milky Way. Bob was out watching the birthing process....first one hoof coming out, then two, then a tongue (really!), the head and then the whole calf. Mama soon popped up and started licking and mooing so Baby would know her sound.

He is already jumping around and running, and then curls up in the grass and naps. His hooves are very soft. I wonder how long before they harden.

He doesn't have a name yet. Any suggestions?
