Two FF posts ago (click here if you are not familiar with FF posts) I wrote that my wife and I witnessed an amazing event just a few hours before we pulled into our home from a trip. It’s an event that rural folks are more likely to witness. It took place not too far over the border of Indiana.
In that post I didn't say anything more but promised to post about it later. Well the Princess of the Fragment, Mrs. 4444 somehow guessed almost the complete answer in her comment.
We witnessed the birth of a calf. One of my wife's favorite places is Fair Oaks Farms. They have quite an extensive operation and great diary products along with tasty sandwiches.

One of their highlights is the birthing barn. It runs 24hrs, 7 days a week. The have a traffic light outside the barn and we happened to be eating outside that afternoon and noticed the light changed to green. My wife (she has toured the whole place before) knew this meant a calf was about to be born. 'About' is relative because while things were in progress when we took our seats. The progress was of the 2 pushes out and 1 slide back type. I didn't take any pictures of the actual birth but this youtube clip shows it very well.
