As the crow flies, we live about a mile from the Maury River. Monday’s weather was beautiful, so we decided to explore the woods around our house with the goal of finding the river.

We found it!

You are witnessing Meggie Moo’s very first time on a riverbank:

Evidence of otters?

Maury5

Evidence of beavers?

I kid you not. We then turned around to see the Moo doing this:

I suppose she thought the beaver was on to something…

Moo had plenty of exploring to do:

And lots to smell:

7.31.13 addendum: Okay, my bad. I didn’t take the time to write a narrative for this post, and in doing so, created some confusion. We’ve had Meggie, a.k.a. Meggie Moo, a.k.a. the Moominator, since 2007.

While she is now very sweet, Meggie hasn’t always been this way. I think she’s mellowing with age, and I think she really enjoys being around us now. She still really digs a good scratch.

We got a boatload of rain last Friday, and the barn turnouts ended up under water. It’s because of that we decided to bring Meggie into the backyard with the Hairy Hacienda crew… and she loved it. She’s still in charge… and the girls and Whisky didn’t mind one bit.
