Checking on Maxine

8 May

I usually take a walk in the pasture each evening which gives me an opportunity to check my Maxine.  For some reason, when I took my walk yesterday, there were vultures hanging around, three of them.  I was surprised to see I’d gotten not only the vulture and the moon, but also a jet flying by.

It looks like Maxine is starting to make an udder.  She is due to have her calf in just about a month.

This should be another black one.  It will be a full brother or sister to Norma Jean.

I can’t wait to meet our newest bovine addition to the family!

I had this post ready to go today before I got up and found MJ had gone down in the night.  It seems somehow appropriate that my post today was to be about a new calf.  The circle of life and all, you know.

Sharing with Good Fences and Skywatch Friday.

 

RIP MJ

My heart and soul.
