Life’s Outtakes

By Daris Howard

It was at this time that our cow decided she wanted to make a break from her mini corral. I was out working in our barn, and had left the door open. The door is not wide, and the cow is majorly pregnant. I hadn’t worried about shutting the door because, at this point in her life, she is about twice as wide as the doorway.
