A Good Fairy Came To The Ranch
Wow they have changed the way you post. Kinda nice, maybe? Early this morning when we drove into the trap there was a surprise. John said who put hay out? Beats me! Between the grain tank and an old barn was a big glob of hay with two cows "goin' to town on it". Then we noticed the old bathtubs John uses to put salt and mineral in for the cows was filled with hay. Good lookin' hay too. Yeah hay can be good looking if you're a rancher or farmer. John got out and looked around trying to figure out who would have left free hay. The cows wouldn't tell. We think maybe the farmhouse renters were at the flea market and someone had one bale left and gave it to them. Maybe they bought it to use for bedding for some animal and then didn't get it. Maybe we'll never know. The renters sleep late so we didn't disturb them. We didn't have to feed or change the water so we just rode around looking at cows and fences. As we came onto the tank dam I spotted a flock of wild turkeys running along a fence line. It didn't take them long to go through the fence and disapper into the tall dead grass where they blend in and can't be seen. All the cows are fine but they sure woud be finer if it would rain.
