My favorite spots on Alex are the little white ones above each of her hooves, MaryJane, although I can't wait to see what her calf looks like and if she/he inherits the spot on the forehead. I was thinking that she had grown up a lot since she got here as well. It's fun to look back at the pictures when she first got here and know that it shows.

I'm much more excited to go through the calving process with Alex now that we experienced it with Elli. It's a little more concerning for me with Alex because she's smaller, but the bulls they had in with all the heifers were mid-sized as well. I'm hoping the calf is appropriately sized. We got very lucky last time! I need to go back and look at Elli's before-birth posts and see is she was as wide as Alex is now. What I remember about Elli before birth was her massive udder!

Alex has grown up Keeley. Pretty cow and I like the white patches. Thanks for sharing her photo. Can't wait to see her little one.
