Izola is down there escaping kisses. Fern has taken to washing Izola down completely -frequently. Bonnie then has to remove the Fern scent – by washing Izola down again. Poor Izola is going to lose her coat at this rate. I’ve noticed all my close-to-due-date cows going into Momma Mode. This morning I caught Fern licking Smoky – one of the French Lops. She looked up at me with the guiltiest look – he quickly scampered off then set to cleaning himself thoroughly.
