On so many levels, it is SO wrong that I should take a shower with a Swedish cow.
For example, usually, I prefer to shower on my own.

I am relieved that you are mollified, Moonbear.
In the future, I promise that ALL my news on mooselets will include pictures of them.

Is this the beginning of a Mooselet series ? Let's hope so, they are way cuter in gangly sort of way than kittens, well maybe not.

Thirded.

I just watched a video of a mooselet on top of a shed eating branches, his mom was next to him and she was the size of a bus. :surprised

Baby moose are very cute. When I was just a kid, my father and I hiked into a remote pond to fly-fish for trout. It was a cool morning and there was a steaming pile of afterbirth in the trail. We went past that to the pond and put our gear in the "canoe", which was made out of 2 old Pontiac hoods welded butt-to-butt. There were quite a few adult moose in the water near the north end of the pond, so we paddled toward the south end, and started fishing. There was a bit of noise just off-shore, and soon we saw a cinnamon-colored baby moose over the alders. Its mother was moving it by putting her snout under the baby and lugging it toward the water. My father and I backed off from that shore and the mother moose put her baby in the water, and encouraged it to swim for about 1/2 hour. When she thought the mooselet was ready, they swam to the trail where we had entered and she encouraged the baby to come out of the water. Without the support of the water, there was a lot of wobbly-knee business at first, but within 5 minutes or so they walked off together.

I had seen lots of cows and horses being born before that, but none of the births were as memorable as that one. That was ~50 years ago, and I still have the visual pictures in my mind.

Let me get this straight, pile of afterbirth in the canal, mother nudging her baby toward the shore, Mooselet wobbly legged, all implies that the baby was born in the water, was supported by the mother after being born in the water, then after reaching the shore the Mooselet took its first steps. Quite a story, you didn't mention that you saw the baby moose being born, but your sequence of events suggest it. I never have heard of that scenario before. Amazing if it were true.

The afterbirth was in the trail leading to the pond. She gave birth on dry land in the shelter of the trees but very close to the pond. She likely had intended to use that short section of trail to transport her baby to the water, but when my father and I showed up, she heard or smelled us approaching, and made a detour through the alders and underbrush. As she brought the baby to the pond, it was balanced on her snout with its legs making a nice counter-balance to keep it upright. What a cute calf.

Yes, you are correct, how did the word "trail" suddenly transform into the word "canal" in my brain leading me astray, can someone come up with a theory backed by peer reviewed evidence ?

You know I was really kidding, right, a brain fart IMO doesn't need intense scrutiny and review.

Rhody... :tongue:
