Alan over at Robot Nine loaned me one of his cows and is she a beaut! Alan has lots of strange, weird, pretty and unusual things to look at. I stayed home to do my house work while John went to Poth to get feed. I had my old jeans, jacket, and sunglasses on waiting by the door when he came back. We headed for the ranch after stopping to pick up our tacos of course. We pay the same price for two or three so its a good thing we bought three. That made one for Miss Kitty who showed up after months. I was thinking she had been killed by renter's big dogs. Those poor dogs get blamed for everything. They sure have run all the grass down to a nub though. Mama Twiggy (named after Johnny G. at My Brain Is In Pain mom) was standing by a fence. She has her own little personality. She always stays in sight of the herd but not with them and is always standing next to a fence but not always the same one. I'm sure she has her reasons but I don't know what it is. She is easy to spot as she has very short legs. The girlfriend's calves are still hanging together. They are so cute playing together like human kids. No I didn't get a picture. When I get out of the truck they run. When we drove toward town we saw a herd of javalinas. Part of them on the property and some by side of the road. This is the first we have seen javalinas in a long time. Seems the wild hogs have run them off. The two of them doesn't seem to cross or mingle. Sad news to tell no name cow didn't make it. She was just too weak. Her calf is doing okay and being fed. John is thinking of keeping her to grow into a cow. The other option was to feed her until next Tuesday and then take her to the auction. We are waiting for time to take my truck and one of John's in for the yearly inspection sticker. Would you believe that garage closes for lunch and takes his time getting back? That is one thing I've had trouble getting used to after living in the city for so long. Offices being closed for the lunch hour and sometime a little longer then an hour. Oh well if we don't catch him we'll have to try another day. He always has plenty of stories to tell.
