We went to the ranch to get everything ready to work cattle tomorrow. Closing gates, opening gates, sometime I don't know what John is doing and why. The cowboy with his horse will be there early. We haven't seen the visiting longhorn lately that the cowboy is supposed to give a ride home in his trailer. Suspiciously one of John's new cows and her calf has been missing too. She is a wild one. John and I played this little scenero in our minds. We decided Ms. Longhorn had lured John's cow and calf home with her. Telling them the groceries were better where she came from. Luring them through the fence where we presume she crawled through. We went hunting them down clear to the back of the back forty. What to our wondering eyes did appear but the wild cow with her calf near the fence which was seperated as if the longhorn had seperated it with her long horns and crawled through. Wild cow doesn't have any horns. When she saw us she ran as far and as fast as she could with her baby in hot pursuit. When she felt safe she stopped to look back then went on and we didn't see her again. John did a little fence repair and then we drove along the fence looking for breaks. When we got near the dry creek bed I spotted the cutest donkey on the next property. There was two of them when I looked closer, the kind that have the cross on their back. We stopped to talk to them, they came near the fence. Probably hoping for a hand out which we had nothing to feed them. Tomorrow the cattle will be put into the pens for vacinations and to load any John decides to sell. He has to be very careful to give all the baby calves their shots on this place as for some reason they sometime get blackleg here and it isn't a good disease. Nice weather here today, not too hot or not too cool but we're still praying for rain.
