My big Jersey girl, Fanci (11 years old), is due any day now. Here's how I've been pampering her several times/day.



And then of course her full-body rubs also give me a workout!



As I stepped out from pampering Fanci, there stood my other Jersey girl, Eliza Belle (born here), who is also due any day now with her first calf. I've been giving her lots of love and body rubs as well.

I bet Fanci loves the full body rubs.

Oh, that looks so comforting for the cows. Thank you for sharing. Those cows definitely are getting the royal treatment and it shows in how much they trust you.

Clover and Betsy want to make an appointment!

Annabelle has a massage at night now. She loves it. Her chin rests on the floor as I massage her neck. I suppose she is going to request that every night. I guess I will just have to give in to her. She is highly spoiled, but she doesn't think so.

Hello Victoria. I knew Annabelle would love her massage. Don't think of it as spoiled, think of it as well deserved. You will both benefit from the massage/workout together. Hope to get a picture of Annabelle. Hint.
