Today I was able to rub Cleo all over, including her cute little belly! So far, she's a LOT friendlier than Dixie Cup, which isn't hard to do since Cup is WILD and CRAZY. (Cup is 16 days old now, if you can believe it!)
Cleo spent most of today napping in the sunshine while Queenie snacked on grass and hay. It was pretty hot here (low 90s), so napping in the sunshine wasn't hard to do. I took these photos this evening as the setting sun's rays were starting to be filtered by the haze from the humidity.
Queenie is proving to be a good mother. It's unfortunate she lost her calf last year and didn't have the opportunity to raise her first born. She's very attentive, and quietly moos at Cleo throughout the day. I think things are going just perfectly!
I'm in a photography group and there are personal photo assignments that we're issued topics for. The last topic was Fine Art (remember my rooster photo?). The new topic is "Relationship". I think this will be a great topic for me, especially with all of the new babies on the farm!
Princess delivered a bull calf last spring (named Ribeye). We're crossing our fingers and toes that she delivers a heifer this year.
Princess is a BEAUTIFUL cow, and we hope all of her babies are as pretty as she is.
