I was recovering some photos from an old computer and discovered these. Mollie Moo gave birth to Hope early on the morning of June 3, 2003. I missed the birth, arriving minutes too late. This is one of the first pictures I took, shortly after 6:30 a.m. Hope has not yet gotten to her feet (er, hooves):

Here is a close up. Mollie was prodding Hope to get up. For some reason, Mollie's principal strategy was to lick Hope's rear end:

At 6:45 a.m. Hope arose. She was a bit wobbly at first:

After a brief pause for a refreshment . . .

Hope received a congratulatory nuzzle from her mom.

    I remember when Harry brought Mollie home. It's great to see her again via these photos.
    If I'm not mistaken just below the cow photos it looks like my ancestor, Gen. Scott with Pres. Lincoln. I just learned about a book by John Eisenhower, Agent of Destiny: The Life and Times of General Winfield Scott. It will be interesting reading since I'd like to compare what I was told as a child about Gen. Scott.

    I thought you might like those pictures.

    That is indeed General Scott. I had no idea he was your ancestor! Wow!
