Born yesterday, the tiny calf takes a rest in the sun while the herd eats breakfast. Bob and Joyce have begun horse training in the circular arena in the background.
While the cows eat, the ever protective llama comes over to check her out. He sniffed her all over, then stood there for a while, looking like he too was enjoying the sunshine.
Soon mommy cow comes over to make sure all is well, while papa continues with breakfast and Judah, the dog, keeps his distance.
Not far enough for mommy cow, who takes off after him and chases him a considerable distance down the field.
Judah wonders what that was all about, while I get a chance to capture mountains in the morning mist.
After all that, I better take a rest, says he.
I take a picture of the horses as we head up to Joyce's great veranda for a cup of coffee. A nice way to start the day.
My friend Carol, in the Central Valley, likes rocks too, so I packed some small and pretty ones in the smallest Priority Mail box and sent them to her last week. It was a surprise. She called today to thank me and let me know how much she liked them and how she would decorate with them. Made me smile.
