The Lost Has Been Found
We left the house at 7:30 A.M. to look for Ginger and her pal. We wanted to try to beat the heat. We looked everywhere and they were no where to be found. I had a vision of them crossing the border already into Mexico. It isn't safe over there for humans. I can imagine what they would do to two cows. We finally spotted two cows in the distance almost covered with tall sunflowers in a field. We stopped and John aimed the binoculars at them but couldn't tell for sure so he called Ginger! Ginger! No response. Well I wasn't expecting her to yell back but thought she would come to us if it was her. So thinking she was raised mostly by a woman I got out to yell her name. That didn't work either so we drove around and down the fence line to where the two cows were happily grazing. It was them but, Ginger didn't give us the time of day. The pal did raise her head and look at us. John wanted me to get out and see if she would let me pet her. The grass was tall and damp and I had on my most comfortable shoes and didn't want to get them wet. After being raised on five acres I guess they are enjoying their freedom and trying the grass on all parts of the land. I don't think they are going to be pets any longer. They are staying near the herd but close to each other. It will be interesting when they both are with calf and then give birth. I think they will still be close friends and raise thier calves together.
