Farewell To The Ducks And Geese
Yippe they are gone from the stock tank. As soon as the weather clears up I can start calling the turtles and feeding them. I wonder if they remember? I bet they do. We had noticed two ducks missing and John said he bet the renters were going to eat them. I didn't think so, the girls get to attached to their animals. Yesterday John went out ahead of me then told me the geese and the other duck is missing. I thought they sold them on Craig's List as they talk about Craig's List all time.. When we left we stopped by the farm house to ask if they knew their ducks and geese are missing. They said they caught them and brought them home as they had seen one coyote and then had seen three so they figured they were window shopping for food. John is glad they are not in the tank any longer as they were keeping the water muddy and white feathers everywhere. He didn't like it for the cows to have to drink. To be honest I think John had gotten just as attached to those turtles as I had. We have had drizzle all day and maybe heavy rain tonight. We are so thankful as it is sooo dry here and with New Year's eve coming and fireworks there would surely be fires and damage. We still have Shelly Marie and Noel in the pen getting pampered and treated like royal cows. I wonder if Shelly knows how lucky she is. Not many cows get this special treatment after givng birth.
