Look what I found that Sugar gave me a long time ago. We went out to let the new mama cow, her calf, and one other out of the pens this morning. Seems mama was getting a little stir crazy. She pawed the ground and kicked up dust and ran at John. He didn't take his eyes off her. When he got her and the other cow out the baby was still in there and was confused as the mama and the other cow had run into another pasture. He finally got the cow and calf together and everything was coming up roses. The wind has blown here for the last several days and with it so dry the land looks quite depressing. Not much to write about but we did see one deer on a narrow country road going to his daughter's to ask her to put out two bails of hay today. The cows are eating it fast and furious. They were all out trying to scavage any piece of grass they can find. I forgot to tell Shirl that the lix tubs are a little hot so they make the cows want to eat the dry grass and there is plenty of that. John's daughter had found a parakeet in her cow pens. She said it was with some small wild birds. She was able to throw an old shirt over it and catch it. She put it in a nice tall cage and it was so thirsty. She and her mother live in an old farm house with three cats, two dogs and now a bird with goats and cows on the property.
