A Cow Mama's Love
The black birds were still at the ranch this morning. Not everywhere, just behind the house and at the cattle pens. Their noise is almost deafening. I hope they settled down for the night so the renters could get some sleep. The rabbit food was gone but I didn't see it anywhere in the area it frequents. John has decided it would be for Josie's (blind calf) best interest to take her to market. Mama cow number 12 had other ideas. She seemed to know what was up. She kept Josie at a distance from the pens as John was penning one large calf (whose Mama didn't seem to care). We could see them standing and watching but not coming up to beg for cubes. I wish he would just let her live her life out there roaming wherever she wants to go and doing whatever she wants to do. John thinks her Mama will wean her soon and if she grows up and has a calf herself she can't see how to take care of it. I think instinct would take over and with her keen hearing and smell she would raise it then her baby would lead her around. Who am I to say, I've never owned a cow in my life?
