Josie Survived The Big Rain
We went out to feed the cattle early this morning but our real concern was Josie (blind calf) that she may have wandered into the stock tank while it was raining, got confused and had a bad ending. I don't think we give her enough credit. She is fine and growing like a weed. She don't bellow for her Mama so much now. They stay close and number 12 is such a good Mama. This is the first big rain since Josie was born a few months ago so we wonder what she thought of all that water plinking down on her fur and the thunder was so loud. I know Susie our cat got scared and she is so old she has seen lots of rain and thunder in her time. Before John could get the garage door open she was inside like a flash and didn't come out until she was sure it was over. I didn't see my cottontail rabbit this morning so I just left it food at our little secret hiding place. I've only found one thing it won't eat and that is onion skin. We couldn't drive some parts of the ranch but we could go on the tank dam but only one turtle came to eat and it didn't act hungry. They must have been sleeping-in this morning and celebrating the first day of October.
