That Little Girl. I tell you, she has some super special hair! Every time I go out to visit with the girls lately, it seems I end up belly laughing at Little Girl's hair. None of the others have hair like hers. Maybe it's an elk calf thing (obviously, since she's my only one so far, I don't have any other data points with which to compare!). Maybe she's just extra special.
Little Girl has always been fairly fuzzy, but even just a few months ago, in December, it was reasonably normal. And then things began to change.
I think this picture above, which I took in mid-January was the first time I got a little chuckle at her hair. I also love the coloring on her ears here. So striking.
She's such a character. Even in the rain here, though, her hair wanted to stand up a bit.
Every time I went out, it got more wild! I'd been trying for some time to catch her "do" from the right angle and with the right light to really show you how crazy it is, but - of course - the time I finally catch those two things right, I didn't get the photo to focus! But this! This is how crazy her hair has been.
By the way, I'll bet you didn't know that Little Girl does a great llama impression. ;-)
Again, not in focus, but crazy hair! As February turned into March and March dragged on (and on), it seemed like Little Girl's hair was getting longer and longer. In fact, it confused me so much that I kept catching myself thinking that we were heading into winter because apparently that's the only explanation my brain could come up with for this crazy hair growth!
It doesn't always look quite so wild. I love this picture I got recently of little Girl. She's still really fuzzy, but she doesn't look silly at all. In fact, it may be my favorite picture of her ever.
I love watching you grow, Little Girl... hair and all!
