First let me say I wasn't clear on the picture on my last post of the cow eating pear apples. I didn't take that picture because the cow was in misery. I took the picture to show she is hog heaven eating pear apples. They throw their head back to keep the apple from falling to the ground where they have to pick it up from the dirt and I imagine the dirt or sand doesn't taste so good. Of course I've said before if I had to make a choice between liver and dirt, I would choose the dirt. Seemed a lot of you were feeling sorry for the cow so I wanted to clear that up. As I said they do at times get a little thorn in their mouth and make funny faces trying to dislodge it. They have food to eat and don't have to eat these to survive but they are a treat to them that they only get once a year. This ranch always has roadrunners (chaparell birds) (pasianos) but this morning they were everywhere. Sometime we don't see any and some time a few but this morning they were everywhere doing what they do best. Run up and down to where and what I don't know. We saw two more cotton tail rabbits in the lane to the back forty. I don't think it is the same two we have been seeing near the cattle pens so I'm happy it seems they are making a come back. John said one of them looked pregnant. I couldn't tell she wasn't wearing a maternity dress. Oh thats right this isn't the 50's they don't wear those any longer.
