Mother Love

Will the real mother step forward?
That was my thought as I watched these other pregnant cows try to claim this new calf. 
It doesn't happen too often, but sometimes a pregnant  cow will try to 
claim every new baby  before she has her own calf. 

                                                 The real mother, the Ayrshire in the center,
                                   did step forward when the other cows got a little too close.
                                              Maternal instinct is strong and protective and
                                 one of the many miracles we witness down on the dairy farm.
