Happy endings

Tayla is a tall, trendy 10 yr old. She tells me that on the weekend she had to help her dad birth a calf, and it all went wrong. Her dad had to break the calf''s bones to extract its body bits. The cow was pretty wrung out, but they watered, fed, mended and tended her, got her to her feet and she perked up.
The next day they returned and she was ...not making it. Tayla's dad shot her. "You thought it was going to have a happy ending, didn't you?" Tayla said.
