More Snowballs

This little heifer  showed up while I was in Juneau the 17th or 18th.  The morning I left I followed the mom through nearly knee deep snow for over a mile before I found her.  She was obviously looking for a place to give birth.  She is one of those kinds of mothers that will stay away from the rest of the cows for at least a week to bond and give that calf a solitary start.  She obviously has plenty of fat to support that lifestyle.  Unfortunately her calf will probably also inherit the  independent wild spirit of her mother.
