disappointment’s questions

 

cow pushes

hard, long

granddaughters

come along

to witness birth of calf

girls interested in kittens

already few weeks old

realize something wrong

in birth canal – nose, one hoof

show but never second foot

leg bent unnaturally

cannot push out

(naturally)

must pull

stillborn

 


Unfortunately, this was our experience yesterday…linking quadrille to dVerse.

    What a shame! The girls will realize it is not smooth sailing but it’s a good experience. It should make them have more sympathy for birth situations in future.

    This is so sad… and what an experience of life (and death) for your grandchildren.

    I’m sorry. 😦 Never easy to experience or to try to explain. Even in death there is life. Hopefully the new kittens will offer some comfort.

    A sad alignment of word and real life. An especially hard experience for the girls I would imagine but fortunately they have the kittens (and you of course)
