First thing out of bed, even before coffee (!!), still in pjs, I checked on Abigail. Nope, no calf yet. Then, I went for coffee …. only to discover that last night I forgot to put the lid on the carafe, which is what allows the coffee to drip into the carafe. Therefore, my coffee filled up the filter holder and ran over that, down the cabinet, onto the floor. No pictures of that. No sound either (good thing). So, I spent my first 30 minutes in the kitchen cleaning. Pig-farmer was happily away on a business trip.
She got up for her morning back scratch. Notice her calm, relaxed ears?
While I was scratching her back, she snapped to attention. When livestock alert, so should you. I had to strain to listen for what she was hearing…. coyotes.
The big, old, barn in the east isn’t ours, nor is it where they were headed. It looks closer in the pictures!
Here’s to hope (and patience) this Friday, friends!
