Necessity is the mother of invention.
A mother may cause you to invent an alternate plan.
That's the new version of the famous saying after the guys had to get creative to work a new baby calf. They danced around the protective mama and eventually got it deposited in the back of the pickup.
The mama retreated. I imagined her bellowing was designed to bring the cavalry to the baby's rescue. She couldn't round up any of her friends, so she came barreling back.
She was glad to get the baby back. Mission accomplished.
