Contented cows

Mr. Red came up by himself, bawling, shortly after our walk yesterday.  He didn't spend long here, but turned and went back the way he came to rejoin our little herd.  Later on from my window I saw all the cows out on the point.  

After dinner I decided to go check on them, because with a new animal on the place, you just can't take for granted that they'll be all right.  At first I panicked, because Babe and the bull were missing.  Babe's calf, Annie, was chewing her cud contentedly between Jody and Bonnie.  Finally, I noticed movement way off behind them, back where my cabin used to be.  

  Red and Babe were off by themselves.  Do you think he realizes she is going to be his first chance at romance?  Everybody seemed content.

 I wanted a good picture of me relaxing against Jody, but holding the camera at arm's length and guessing at what the picture will look like leaves something to be desired.  You can either see this shot with Jody's nose...

Or this one, with her ears.  Oh well.  

Annie isn't so scared of me any more.  Looks like we're going to have a lovely autumn, doesn't it?

It does look lovely there. I'm so glad all are contented. It makes for a more contented you too! It's been lovely here the last few days too. Warmer and sunnier and that makes me happy!
