For Mother’s Day 2014, we thought we’d run photos of a cow being born. Photographer Bob Breese, man of infinite patience, got to know the herd at Lowland Farm, going there day after day and spending hours. On April Fools morning, he discovered he’d been eluded. He arrived to find an hours-old calf starting to walk and suckling. We were happy with those shots (plus it was deadline), but Breese kept going back. On April 4, his patience was rewarded when he got to see, and document, a cow named Pansy give birth to a brown and white boy. Two years later, he went back for a reunion.
