Ginger Is Home
The owners of Ginger called early this morning to say Ginger has agreed to go to her new home. She is loaded in the trailer and ready to go, her bags are packed. We left in a rush expecting her to be pitching a fit. She was calm as a cucumber and smelled our hands. Guess we've been out there so many times she knows our scent. I followed behind and she was a good girl all the way. John had put one of the cows from across the road in the pens so she would have company. when he unloaded her they went to each other and sniffed. I know they knew each other as they lived across the road from each other and could see each other all time. The road is so narrow they could smell from that short distance I'm sure. Who knows maybe they always wished they could live on the same property. They may even have a cow slumber party tonight. They have water, cubes, and hay. We will go out late this afternoon just to check to see that everything is okay and tomorrow the two will be turned out with the herd with lots of new friends to meet.
