I couldn't resist this gorgeous photograph.
Waharoa farmer Anne Barbour found it easy to forgive her first calving cow of the season for being a bit shaky on her feet after the mum produced a hat trick of new arrivals.
The dairy cow marked the start of the calving season by delivering heifer triplets unaided in the early hours of Wednesday morning last week.
"It really knocked the stuffing out of her," Mrs Barbour said.
"She was a bit off-colour the day before so we put her in the paddock and she delivered naturally overnight. We just came out in the morning and there they were."
The calves were healthy and would be checked by dairy researcher Dexcel to see whether they were identical triplets and worth including in herd research.
Do they look identical to you?
