Today is Leap Day, that day that only comes every four years during Leap Year. I've seen various pictures around the web that show animals leaping or people leaping and it made me think of days gone by here on our little farm.
The calf shown above was one who had a wonderful 'personality' and we often laughed at him. He LOVED to eat and when we would go to the barn and give a shout for the calves to come for their daily feeding of grain, this calf would come running, leaping, and bounding with all the exuberance of a child in a candy store.
That year, like this one, we had lots of rain and LOTS of mud. So, these photos show the calf leaping through the mud to come into the barn for his grain.
I hope you embrace today with the same excitement and that it has the same satisfying opportunities that the grain feeding did for this calf.
Happy Leap Day!
