The Bovine Pair

Delilah was a hoot today.  We went for our evening walk and came upon Delilah standing over a sapling she had bent to the ground to get to the leaves on top.  The minute she saw us, she stood up with an expression as if to say, "What?  I didn't do it!" and then came trotting over to see if we had anything yummy to offer.

Earlier, I caught her napping under her favorite tree (Samson was very nearby, too).
It's unusual to catch her sleeping, but it sure makes us happy to see such contented cows!

Little Samson is growing up!  His coloring is so beautiful!  We thought he might lose all of his white highlights when he lost his winter coat, but he has more than ever on his head and face!  Even his tail is full of white!  He has gained a lot of weight (I can say that, it's good for a bull!) and yet is still as sweet as ever.  Delilah still grooms him and they are never far from each other!

He was napping with Delilah under the pines as well.  Usually around mid-morning and again in the afternoon, they will spend time just laying under the pines.  Of course, I'm spending the same time sitting on the porch in my favorite chair, so I think it's safe to say, everyone is enjoying summertime on the farm!

Aren't they just the sweetest pair?  We are hoping that she might be pregnant.  We only witnessed a few unsuccessful attempts by Samson earlier this spring, but we think he might have figured it out at some point as she hasn't been in heat that we've noticed!  A calf would be so exciting!

(Delilah refused to look my way.)
