Indy........

If your here for quilting leave now..........
It was a day of all days when you came into the world.............barely breathing when you were born but we got you going.......the adventures of your birth are here..........

first drink.............

first steps............

life in the garden in the early days.........

your favourite hang out right at the chookshed gate where you could score some milk and a pat..............

You met the cows............

And Curly Pops (the other special girl)

You slept on the lawn and looked adorable............

Life started to get busy and Charlotte joined you..........

And a pile of other babies..........
you were still the "golden child" even when you busted my foot.......

You don't always get special babies like Indy...........she was growing up to be a sook just like Curly Pops...........

But now your just a precious memory in my life..............
Indy got sick and had been given some medicine but just kept going down hill...........
Poddies are never as strong when they don't get colostrum from the cows............magic powers in mothers milks............
I'll just keep this memory of her in the last 2 weeks playing at the chookshed........her favourite haunt and where she also died........Yes your just a calf but you were a special one.........
Goodbye Indy
Catch you later
Chookyblue
