Ginger Said Noooo Way
John fell in love with Ginger and agreed to buy her so here we go down Turtle road to pick her up this morning. She was relaxing on the ground under a tree near the double gate just as if she was waiting for us. WRONG! She hadn't fallen in love with John at all. Her owners came out and started their feeding ritual thinking she would step right into the trailer. WRONG again. Ginger is not only fat and beautiful, she is one smart cow. She figured out what a rope means quickly and she didn't want any part of it. The people don't have cattle pens. They don't raise cattle. This is a pet. John and I finally hid behind a tree while they sweet talked her. No luck. While we had the tiny Turtle road blocked with the truck the neighbors ask John if he wanted to buy their cows. Does cows like hay? If John can buy a cow at a bargain he is game. We came home and he has hired a guy with a larger trailer and to help so out we'll go again in the morning. He has bought a bull named Clyde and I don't know the other's names. I can't blame Ginger for not wanting to leave the only home she has known. Lots of green grass and a tank stocked with fish right at the back door. A large deck with a hot tub. Oh thats right cows don't fish and soak in hot tubs.
