Testing The Gravy Train
What if you were on the ground on your back with your eyes closed and you felt something nudging your feet, opened your eyes and this big girl was standing over you smelling your feet? The black calves John bought with their Mama's recently are acting up, getting out on the road and tearing up fences. John has tame animals and when they act up one time too many off to the auction they go. These were big enough to be sold anyway. His son couldn't come until after lunch to haul them to auction so John went out very early to get them in the pens. It was already very hot and he was exhausted so he lay down on the ground to rest and get his breath. John told me he thought this bossy cow was testing to see if he was dead and her gravy train had come to an end.
