Sunny Sunday

So this past sunday, Maikal and I went out to Magrath for the day.
We watched conference, ate lunch with his family, then headed out to feed the animals.
While Maikal was bringing the hay over to the cows and horses, he noticed something slimy and white-ish on the ground. It was a PLACENTA! I've never seen one before so I was very confused at first as to what is was. After seeing this, he looked around to see if there was a calf hovering around the mama cow somewhere.
Eventually we spotted it! It was so dang cute and I just wanted to run over and cuddle with it!
But as I got closer, I saw that it was still all slimy so I thought I would hold off on the cuddling until it's a little more dry :)
Maikal of course tried to catch it for me so I could at least see him a little closer. He succeeded but i was too scared of mama cow to get to close.
We tried over and over again to get closer, but the mom and calf just kept moving further further away from us. If we would get really close, the mom would face back at us and just glare! She scared me a little bit so I decided to back off. Even though I wasn't able to pet this adorable little calf, we still got some pretty cute shots :)


This is Maikal's horse Australia.
Jesse and Maikal broke him in 1 week
then Maikal road him in a parade on the weekend.
He wants to sell him because his other horse
is about to have a little colt.

This is just before the mama cow
looked back at me with those
protective mother eyes



Precious moment <3
