Lil' Hissey Fit
I haven't been able to go with John to the ranch the last two times so was anxious to see Josie this morning and see how she is doing. We don't have a problem finding her now as she makes sure she stays near her mama and mama is usually with the herd. I think her scent and hearing senses work overtime to make up for her blindness. We saw her mama walk off from her and she ran in circles jumping up and down and kicking up her back legs and bellowing. Looked just like a little human kid you see in a store when it doesn't get his or her way and bawls and throws a tantrum. Mama doesn't answer her every whim now. She is growing even though we haven't seen her graze or drink water. We're only out there every other day and for about an hour. South Texas is heating up. We'll be crying for rain again soon but so far the grass is green and the stock tank is full of water.
