It hasn’t taken me this long to name her, I promise,
it’s just taken me this long to write about it.
Way back when I first posted about this calf, a brilliant commenter left the suggestion to name her after a star, apropos of Star Brand.
I loved this idea and looked up a bunch of star names, and wrote them down along with some other suggested names. I went out and sat about fifteen feet from where this little calf was lying and started reading the names out loud.
When I said “Maia,” she raised her head and looked at me. I kept reading through the names and she went back to ignoring me, but when I said “Maia” again, she got up and trotted over to me. So Maia is quite certainly her name! It’s a star in the constellation Taurus (the bull), which is also rather fitting.
She’s feisty and sweet and has seamlessly integrated into the Farmily.
