​Nomads have a lovely tradition to welcome new-born baby animals jointly. Even without the knowledge of obstetrics, you may be allowed to assist in the birth of calve​s, pups, foals, and other youngs which will definitely become an unforgettable experience. If you do not feel like being directly involved in the process, you may always observe the action at a distance. The livestock baby boom comes to Mongolia every spring, between February and April.
