Queen of the Mountain

This week of beautiful sunshine, warm weather and drying mud has been good for the calves. They don’t hunker under the tall trees all day, rather they cavort around and lounge in the sun.

Once on top of the stump, she started stretching (and possibly yawning), while the sun warmed her.

It took a bit of maneuvering, but she was able to get her front legs under her before settling down to rest.
