Just had to come back here to tell this. We had to go back to the ranch late today to check on the haying. The front field is finished and the large round bales are being hauled to the fenced hay yard so the cattle can't get to it until they need it this winter when the green grass is all gone. The back field is cut but not raked and baled yet but this is not what was sooo cute. Remember the big metal trough the renters ask to use for a swimming pool? Well it seems they have turned it over to the animals. They are very large people so I'm thinking they may have trouble getting in or maybe when all six of them get in the water all goes out. Have no idea but we noticed animals bobbing up and down so John stopped the truck and we walked over to the fence and all the geese and all the ducks were having a ball diving to the bottom and coming back up. The renter girls went into the shed and brought the baby ducks and put them into the water too. I think they all thought they had died and gone to heaven. They can't let them go down to the stock tank with the turtles and catfish because if they couldn't catch them the coyotes would eat them.
