Perse has been residing on the neighbors place for a number of years. I had bottle fed her and befriended her and then she left me for a bull across the fence. How fickle! But now she is home and with a new calf. I forgive her, she is welcome here.
She actually ran up to me last week while she was in labor. I hung out with her until I got too cold in the rain and then later went back to where I left her and I couldn't find her. I had thought she had left me again. But no, she was here the whole time, just waiting until her calf was big enough to join the herd here at our house. It is so silly, but I love this cow. She often runs up to me and licks my face and moos softly. It always warms my heart.
