The Lamb and the Calf

While we were out walking yesterday we came across a field of sheep and cattle. That's nothing unusual you might say! However we were amazed to see a calf and lamb tenderly caressing each others faces.

Unfortunately, by the time I got my camera out, they had noticed us watching them so stopped to gaze at us. Never the less, I managed to get a pic of them standing close together.

Although I found the experience joyous! I also felt an overwhelming sadness because these animals will never be allowed to live out their natural lives, and will be put to death whilst still babies.

If only others could see the gentle curiosity and respect these two farm animals displayed to each other. Maybe then, they would stop eating them!
