Jody, limping; and mysterious handwriting on a window

My daughter asked just how bad Jody's limp really is; I told her it's better some days, worse others, but she is never going to get better.  We simply keep hoping against hope that she can get around until mid-February, when her calf is due.  I took a short video to let everybody see the extent of her problem.  It's poor quality, since I took it from inside the house at a distance, but I think you will be able to see the problem.  She can't run to save her life.  I know this because when the horses act out a little and try to make the cows get out of their space, the others trot or run, while Jody simply limps away.  If you enlarge it to full-screen it may be more easily seen.

Hmmm.  I see letters on this video, as though someone wrote something on my window.  I can't make out the word, though.  Hmmm.
Update:  Friend David Remley says the word looks like "closed".  I am so relieved one of my grandchildren or Cliff's sister or brother-in-law did not put an obscenity on my window!  (Not that any of them would... I hope not anyway.)  Funny thing, I went in there to try and see the word and you can't see anything on the window at all.  But I did the video when the sun was coming up in the east, and this is an east-facing window.  Maybe that's why it showed up.   
Wait just a minute, there's a letter "A" there.  There is no "A" in closed!  The mystery deepens.

The writing says "CLOSED".... I think.

Were you wearing a shirt with a logo on it? The writing looked backwards. That might explain it.

Now I don't know a thing about cows but is it possible that she may have something in her foot?

I was thinking Colorado too. Sheila

I wonder if the calf is pressing on something that is making her limp. The reason I wonder that is that when I was pregnant with Andrew, for about two weeks in my third trimester I got a little hitch in my getalong. It worked itself out, but I think it was how I was carrying him at the time. Anyway, I hope she can hold on until the calf is born.

Clever answers, but I already read the solution above. :) Poor Jody. I hope she can keep going too.

Poor Jody -- she does look pretty uncomfortable. MGW
