I enjoyed this story. I grew up on a farm & witnessed calving a time or two or fifty. Usually my dad brought the cow into the barn for the birth & some needed his assistance (I won't go into details here! :-)). Always a fascinating experience tho'. Cute names for the cow & calf; my dad used the alphabet & we all got to help come up w/names according to the letter we were on. Thanks for sharing!

Your descriptive writing draws the reader into the life of a rancher. As an animal lover, I enjoyed the MC's emotional attachment to the animals. And love, love, love the surprise ending. Wow!

I was sort of expecting the MC to become mid-wife to the Mama cow, and help a little one into the world,but the surprise at the end of the story was just as satisfying. Good job.
