Cows and dogs cooling, a lifer and new calf

Hello everyone. I'm a day late at posting on Eileen's meme again, Internet slowness and my notebook needed updating. Which needed Internet! A vicious circle.

An LBJ has caught my attention in the past weeks. I asked my SIL Shelley for an ID. She narrowed it down to a pippit. According to my bird book, it looks like a Buffy pippit. Any birders out there, please help? 
 Buffy Pippit -a lifer for me

As always on our walk  we see cows! They were coming home to be milked...

 But first, cool the hooves...
... and have a drink 
 Skabby beat a hasty retreat! 
 Mmmm, making good milk 
 The sun was already low on the horizon 
 A newborn calf with a big voice !
Mum watches the  human and dog carefully 
My little car is a year old this month this week. And has had ten weeks of rest. And was filthy dirty! 
After Thandi's loving touch, it's fresh inside and sparkling outside 

I'm linking to Saturday Critters here

I trust you're all keeping well and safe. Happy Sunday to you !
