she is more impatient and distrustful than jeanette. and the flies are bothering her more then they are bugging percy. but she ate a very good dinner tonight and there are no tears dripping out of her very wide open eyes..but i think that big eye thing might be a sign of her stress. i am assuming she lived in the very same place amongst the same herd for most of her life so being taken away and ending up here has to be hard for her to figure out. too bad i can't tell her it was here or it was dead, it might make it easier for her to settle in. i know she has been fed separate from the other cows since she got old cuz her owner said she wasn't assertive enough at the round bales.
and she is having nothing to do with me getting too close or poking around her private and beautifully spotted person so that ugly tattered blue thing is going to have to wait.... but i am telling her it really needs to come off. as long as she wears it she is subjugated to man, that thing is for moving her around and ain;t no one here gonna make her move anywhere if she doesn't want to (shhhh, until it is time to trim up her feet.)
so saint spot is apparently a strong and distant cow today...who knows who she will be in a very few weeks (i hope she lets me touch her face.)
but percy has already settled a bit now that he has another cow to hang out with. (i also hope she eventually lets him lick her and i hope she licks him back and i hope she lives happily here for a very long time.)
welcome spot...here's hoping for many, many good moments for you.
